The family of a murdered Florence couple is offering a cash reward in exchange for information regarding the unsolved case.
During a Wednesday press conference held by the Boone County Sheriff's Office, the children of Bill and Peggy Stephenson announced a $5,000 reward to the public to provide information that will help solve the crime.
"The killer is still walking among us and we are convinced someone … has information that will lead to the arrest of the killer," Doug Stephenson, son of Bill and Peggy, told reporters.
In addition for asking for the community's help, the Stephensons' three adult children also thanked the community for their support.
"The many prayers offered up for our family is greatly appreciated and a true testament to our wonderful parents," Doug said, choking back tears.
The loss has been felt deeply at their home church. Bill was a deacon at Union Baptist Church and his wife an organist for the congregation. Bill was known in the community for his work with the Trucker's Chapel ministry at a truck stop on Route 18 just off Highway 75.
"Mom and dad's love for God, the care they showed to others, and all the hearts they touched over the past 74 years is what defines our family," Doug said. "That will never be taken away from us."
The Stephensons, both 74 years old, were killed inside their Florence home over Memorial Day weekend in 2011. No arrests have been made.
"Help us get a murderer off the street and help us bring some peace to these people right here," appealed Boone County Sheriff's spokesperson Tom Scheben.
Scheben says the investigation into the murders has spanned eight states and detectives have interviewed over 200 people.
"There, in fact, people out there that has information that will be helpful in bringing about justice sooner rather than later," Commonwealth Attorney Linda Tally-Smith said.
Tally-Smith says the entire community has a stake in seeing justice served.
"A senseless offence like this is an affront to all of us," Tally-Smith said. "We should all be living in fear bases upon what happened in Boone County on May 29 of last year."
"We will not stop and we will never rest until we bring those responsible for the death of your parents to justice," Sheriff Michael A. Helmig promised the Stephenson children.
Police have stayed tight-lipped on the case, saying they don't want to release too much information and risk jeopardizing the case.
In terms of a timeline for the case, investigators say on June 22 they asked the public for help identifying a man seen talking to Bill Stephenson at the T.A. truck stop and were able to clear the man as a person of interest after a viewer identified him.
On July 22 investigators identified Sherman Angel as another person who had been with Bill at the truck stop. Again, with the help of a viewer they were able to contact Angel and interview him.
On December 12 investigators asked for the person who called in a tip to the Shelbyville, Kentucky Police Department to call them directly to aid in clarification.
