Bill and Peggy Stephenson case: Family, friends mark 2 years since Florence couple's murder

FLORENCE, Ky. - Friends and family of a murdered Boone County couple are still looking for answers two years after their death.

Wednesday marks the two-year anniversary since Bill and Peggy Stephenson's bodies were found in their Florence home. The anniversary comes less than two weeks after their nephew, Charles Stephenson received a sentence of life in prison without parole for the beating death of 67-year-old Leigh Jennings in her Aurora, Ind., home. Charles Stephenson was once considered a person of interest in the case.

Bill and Peggy Stephenson, both 74, were found dead in their Ridge Edge Court home in Florence over Memorial Day weekend in 2011. A family member went to their home after they failed to show up for church.

The Boone County Sheriff's Office said they obtained DNA of the person believed to be the killer of Bill and Peggy Stephenson, but they have not yet found a match.

Investigators have questioned more than 250 people across 14 states in the case, but nobody has been charged. So far, their murders remain unsolved and the family has offered a reward of $5,000 for information after they bumped up the amount to $100,000 through November 2012.

Anyone with information on the murders is asked to call either the Boone County Sheriff's Tip Line at (859) 334-3500 or Crime Stoppers at (513) 352-3040.
