"Nothing would ever make sense to do this to grandparents, to just wonderful people," says the Keefe's daugher Melissa Keefe.

Almost two weeks since her parents, Carol and David Keeffe were murdered, Melissa still can't believe it.

"I don't think we can even begin healing until we know," says Melissa.

Until the family knows why someone would kill a prominent, well-known, loving couple.

Pennsylvania State Police say someone used a shot gun to kill David and Carol in the garage of their home in Athens Township.

"These people meant the world to me. And they meant a lot to this community and if anyone knows anything, we just ask that you help us {butt to 19:08} to move pass this a little bit," says Melissa.

Athens Township Police and Pennsylvania State Police are convinced that somebody in the Twin Tiers has information about the Keeffe's murder.

They hope the reward will help the investigation.

"We need the public's support. We need information from the public. Money sometimes motivates people. And we need people to be motivated to come forward," says Lt. Frank Hacken of Pennsylvania State Police.

Police have followed up on hundreds of leads but none have moved the investigation to an arrest.

That's why the Keeffe family is turning to the community for answers.

"Please, please come forward," says Melissa.

A daughter's plea to find her parents' killer.
