SPOKANE-- It’s been exactly one month since Sharlotte McGill was killed while she was walking her dog along the Spokane River.

Spokane Police say they are still getting plenty of tips on this case from the public but don't have any new details to share.  Investigators are still waiting for results from evidence sent to the Washington State Patrol Crime Lab.  Spokane Police don't know when the lab will finish processing their request.

Last month staff in Cheney said the case was a top priority.  But because of the complexity of their analysis, they said it could take weeks.

McGill was stabbed on May 3rd in broad daylight while walking her dog along Tuffy's Trail. It runs more than three miles along the Spokane River, starting near Mission and Hamilton and until Greene Street.

One month later, people in the area are still scared and taking more steps to try and feel safe.  Neighbors are worried for their kids and do not let them out as often.  Others said they are less likely to walk alone.

McGill was able to give police a description of her attacker before she died.

Officers are still working to "narrow down" any possible suspects.
