FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) - Police are looking for a person of interest in connection with the murder of a Florence couple.

Bill and Peggy Stephenson, both 74, were found dead in their home on Rivers Edge Court on May 29.

Detectives have obtained a photo of a man they are hoping to identify from the T.A. Truck Stop on Burlington Pike in Florence. This man was seen speaking with Bill Stephenson on Friday, May 27 at the truck stop.

At this point, police are considering him a person of interest because he was one of the last people to speak with Bill Stephenson.

Bill Stephenson was involved with a truckers chapel at the T.A. Truck Stop.

Bill and Peggy were last heard from on Friday, May 27. They were discovered on May 29 when they failed to show up for church and a family member went to check on them.

Anyone who can provide information is asked to call the Boone County Sheriff's Department tip line at (859) 334-3500 or Crime Stoppers at (513) 352-3040.
