Plater was found around 4:00 Saturday morning, on Franklin Street between 31 and 32 Streets.Her car was running and the front driver side window shot out. Sunday, glass was still on the ground. She was about a half a block away from her parents house.

"I might come back and clean this up, this is going to be hard for my parents to look at," Winston said.

Winston says her sister loved her family.

"She was fun, and loving. The light of the parties, the hard worker. She loved kids. She couldn't have any kids of her own. But she took in half of the Omaha children," she said.

Winston said Plater was sick, so while her death her was tragic, she believes she is at peace.

"I have no hate, I don't hate anyone. I am not even mad. So God saw fit and brought peace. It 'aint what it look like. It is tragic how she went but it's a story God wants us to see." she said.
