The couple was found murdered in their burned out Merced home in October of 2006. But no arrests have been made in the case. Now their children and local investigators are hoping someone will see the flyers and come forward with a tip that could help bring the killer to justice.

The victims' daughter Gail Clendenin said, "We're sure, there's got to be someone out there. You can't do this by yourself and keep it a secret. Somebody out there knows something, and we hope they'll come forward."

Cmdr. Floyd Higdon with the Merced Police Department said, "Any information at all, no matter how small you might think it is would be helpful for us to know."

Anyone with information about this case is being asked to call the Merced Police Department. A $65-thousand dollar reward is being offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the killer.
