Family, friends of fatal Mesa nail salon stabbing victim still looking for answers

- Family members and friends of a woman who was stabbed to death at a nail salon near Baseline and Ellsworth.

The shattered front doors of the Premier Nail Salon, where Lindsey Eastridge was fatally stabbed, have been replaced. The lives of her family, however, are forever shattered.

In the meantime, the man who stabbed Eastridge is still free, and there have been no arrests in the case.

"For someone to just take her from her boys, her husband, our family, our lives, it's just unreal," said the victim's sister, Megan Taylor.

Eastridge, the mother of two young boys, would have turned 31 years old on Wednesday. According to a Facebook post, Eastridge's sister, Karla, wrote that instead of celebrating with Eastridge on her birthday, they will have dinner and release balloons with notes to her.

The family continues pleading for any information from the public that will lead to the arrest of a suspect.

"We know its an adult male, that's pretty clear from the video evidence we have, but beyond that, there's not a lot of things I can tell you, because of the investigation."

Mesa Police continue to ask for tips from the night of the fatal stabbing, when at around 7:30 p.m. on February 2, a man walked in and stabbed Eastridge, near the front of the salon.

As the investigation continues, the family and the community are anxious for answers.

"What comes into play, oftentimes, is we all want to rush," said Detective Berry. "We would love to go out and put our hands on someone and take them into custody, but if we don't have all the work in background, sometimes, you have to let that person go. We don't want to let that person go when we bring them in to custody."

Detective Berry said at this point in the investigation, police officials believe it is not in the best interest of the case to release the video.
