Family members of the 25-year old Chico State student found murdered in a burned out car in a rural area off Highway 162 near Brush Creek were in Oroville today, trying desperately to get more information.

Marc Thompson's body was found last week, and an autopsy has shown he was killed, but authorities aren't saying how.

Today, Action News Now spoke with Marc Thompson's sister and mother outside of the Butte County Sheriff's Office, where they met with Sheriff Kory Honea and Sergeant Jason Hale.

Tierra Alexander, his sister, says Thompson was an active member in the Chico community and was a voice of change.
She says he was double majoring at Chico State, and focused on issues of domestic violence while advocating women's rights.

She also says anyone that met him would tell *you* that he had a positive impact on their life.

And for that reason, she's asking for help from anyone.
"At this point we want anybody with any information about Marc Anthony, his whereabouts, the vehicle, or any time frame to please contact the Butte County Sheriff's Department," Alexander said.

The burnt vehicle Thompson was found in is described as a late 1990's tan or gold Ford Taurus.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 530-538-7671.
