CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Ohio Attorney General's Office is seeking information on thousands of unsolved homicide cases, and featuring a case from Cincinnati.

As part of Attorney General Mike DeWine's Unsolved Homicide Initiative, one cold case a month will be featured on the main page of the AG website.

This month, the office is featuring the 2006 homicide of Gregory Haworth and Lora Davis in Clifton.

The couple was murdered inside their Cincinnati apartment on July 19, 2006. 

"Even six years later, I don't think you ever get over the shock," said Haworth's stepmother, Sherry Haworth.  "I wake up thinking it didn't happen or I think about him and wonder how he's doing until I remember."

According to Cincinnati Police Detective Jennifer Mitsch, the manager of the apartment complex at 515 Lowell Avenue visited the couple's residence and found them shot to death approximately 12 hours after they had been killed.

"We need people to come forward with information on this case," said Mitsch.  "We know there are people who know about what happened who are afraid to come forward, but they need to come forward."

Haworth's father believes his son's killer has likely killed again over the past six years.

"If perpetrators are allowed to go free, they are free to kill other people as well," Rodney Haworth said.  "I would hope that if someone has information about this crime that they would consider the situation where this might have happened to their son or daughter and if they would want the crime resolved."

Police have not publicly spoken about a motive, but Mitsch said police believe it is possible the victims knew their killer. 

"In Cincinnati we have methods in place to help witnesses who come forward," said Mitsch.  "We can offer them protection if they are afraid."
