After a Hmong couple and their daughter were fatally shot in May 2018, loved ones are now hopeful that a billboard and monetary reward will bring in new information to help find the killer, reports FOX40.
Joe Lor, Gina Xiong, and their daughter Kayleen Lor were inside celebrating Mother’s Day last year when someone opened fire into the California home, striking and killing them, reported NextShark.
“Part of our life that has already been taken from us and the family itself feels like there’s an empty void that needs to be filled, which we can never fill,” said Cheng Lor, Joe Lor’s brother.
There are no new leads and no new developments, according to FOX40.
Anti-crime groups Stockton Crime Stoppers and Citizens Against Homicide (CAH) helped the family with the billboards, which are expected to go up in late November.
CAH and the Lors are aiming to spread awareness among the public.
“Billboards are important to us because a lot of crime and murders have been solved by somebody picking up the telephone and calling in a tip,” said Gene Cervantes, a CAH victim advocate.
Cheng Lor said the family holds onto reminders, such as his brother’s car, to keep them hopeful.
“Although it hurts me that I know that my brother is no longer here, it’s a momentum for me to keep on fighting for him,” he said.
