HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) -

Wednesday marks two years since a 15-year-old girl was found stabbed to death in Fairfield.

It remains unsolved and Chelsea Johnson's family is frustrated with what they see as a lack of progress in the investigation and conflicting information from the Butler County Prosecutor's Office and Fairfield Police.

"I don't want this case taken to trial just to be taken to trial. I want a conviction just as much as the prosecutor does, but we need to get the finger pointing out of the way,"said Phil Johnson, Chelsea's grandfather.

"The Fairfield Police Department is saying 'yes we have enough evidence for a conviction and we're getting ready to name the killer and make an arrest' but the prosecution is saying 'no, we don't have enough evidence.' Then something's wrong and the family once again is caught in the middle."

Chelsea's mother, Vicky Fible, says conflicting messages have been a problem throughout the entire investigation.

"I've been told different stories from two years ago until now. Get my hopes up, say one thing and turn around and change it to another. They keep changing their stories," Fible said. "You know, if you're going to say something, hopefully it's the truth. Don't sit and blow smoke up my butt just to hush me up." 

Fible was joined family and friends Wednesday in front of the Hamilton Municipal Building where they waved placards demanding justice for Chelsea, a move they hope will put a little pressure on investigators.

"The only thing we've ever asked since day one is keep us informed, do your job," Johnson said. 

"I'm very frustrated. I'm mad at the world because I feel like no one's helping," Fible said. "Two years I feel like it's a cold case. We shouldn't be arguing from the prosecutor to the police department. Fifteen years old. She's a baby. What if it was someone else's child?" 

Butler County Prosecutor Mike Gmoser says right now the case needs more investigation before he's prepared to take it to trial. Meanwhile no one from the Fairfield Police Department was available for comment.
