    BARTLETT, Tenn. - A Memphis mother is still looking for answers after her daughter drowned during a pool party in Bartlett over a year ago. 

    Darian Towns was 23 years old at the time she was mysteriously found dead in the pool on July 4, 2017.

    Police were called to the 9100 block of Bruton Parish Cove just before 2 a.m. that day.

    The man who called police told officers he and a group of friends began the party the night before and said he was sitting on the deck by the pool when a woman came outside and saw someone at the bottom of the pool.

    “Around 8-o-clock that night, my child hugged me, kissed me and said ‘I’ll talk to you tomorrow. But our tomorrow never came,” Towns said. 

    More than a year later, Towns said she is still looking forward to the day her daughter gets justice. 

    Bartlett Police told FOX13 they are still working the case and are in touch with the DA’s office about it. 

    Towns now has a billboard up of her daughter, hoping someone with answers sees it. 

    A Facebook page has also been dedicated to the search for answers as well, called “Justice for Darian.”

     If you have any information, you are asked to call police.
