    I really hope they solve these murders soon. My brother was friends with these guys. Their friends and family have waited far too long for justice to be served.

    LaLa what thoughts did your brother have about the murders, for example robbery, drugs? Was it meant to be both brothers ? The family does deserve some closure.

    He feels like it was most likely both. It's rumored that they kept a bit of cash around the house and a lot of people in and out. One or both of them were pretty avid skateboarders as was my brother at the time, so they hung out in the same circles. I've always had my suspicions about the gemologist that the older brother worked for but only because I used to wait on him regularly at a local restaurant and thought him to be one of the creepiest old men I've ever had to deal with. I know that creepy doesn't make a murderer, though he was the one who found the bodies. I'm certain he's been cleared every way to Sunday in the past twenty years however. I have a good feeling that something is going to come to light very soon. A few articles have been written in the past few months in our local newspaper about new tips and leads with one of them mentioning how relationships change over a twenty year period that could lead someone to talk who wasn't willing to before.

    To me, that sounded pretty promising as far as progress is concerned. (I'm not sure if I put the hyperlink in right, if not, I will try to correct it if need be).

    Thankyou for the link, I can't imagine the pain of the parents. What a great cold case unit, they sound very dedicated!

    Wondering if they have any DNA evidence? Do you know anything about the "Brainerd Road Area" or the "pink apartment building in Memorial Auditorium" in the article? Are any of the places mentioned tied to the gem dealer?
