    Sounds like the killer(s?) were looking for something.

    Potentially related to the father's and/or brother's criminal activities.

    Unfortunately, it's been a year and the police admit that they have no leads and no suspects.

    From March 2009:

    Lang was discovered dead at about 9 p.m. in a home at 5397 Route 982, where she lived with her father and brother... State police said the house was a known hub of "drug activity" in the village of Peanut.

    Samantha's father, James C. Lang Jr., 50, and her brother, James III, 38, were incarcerated at the Westmoreland County Prison at the time of the slaying...

    On the day she was killed, police noted "a strong smell of marijuana" inside the one-story home, according to a search warrant affidavit filed before Derry District Judge Mark Bilik. The house appeared to have been ransacked. A rear door apparently had been forced open, and a gray metal safe was left on a bed. A metal lockbox was found on a back porch, Trooper Teko Angellichio disclosed.

    Lang's mother, Carol Polo, told WTAE that she's sure somebody knows something about what happened and she hopes that person will decide to come forward now...

    Miller said the past five years without her baby sister have been very difficult. But she said the family remains confident that an arrest will be made, and they won't stop fighting for justice.

    "Her killer thinks he's gotten away with it, you know? To him, my sister meant nothing, but to us, she was everything. You don't get to take somebody and then live life normally because my life will never be the same, so how dare you live normal," said Miller.
