LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - The family of a Louisville murder victim is taking matters into their own hands.
There have been no arrests and no answers, but Amanda Curby is hoping that someone can help. "We need that one person that knows something that is terrified to step forward," she says, "we just need them to just open up and remember that there's family behind this person."
Curby and her family are on a campaign to find the person who murdered her cousin, Dennis Holland.
"We have had silent auctions and benefits and we have sold bracelets with justice for Dennis on them," and that's not all they've done, Curby says "we have raised enough money to offer a 10-thousand dollar reward."
Holland was shot and killed in July of this year and so far, there have been no arrests. That's why family members purchased a billboard near the site of the crime.
"He was murdered at Taylor Blvd. and Central" Curby says "in an alleyway behind his home."
Curby hopes the bracelets, the billboard or reward money will motivate someone to come forward.
"Somebody had to have seen something, somebody was there, they found him so we think that someone in that general area probably knows something and they're scared to step forward, " she says "I think that we need that closure because we lost so much when we lost him."
Curby says the 10-thousand will be money well spent, "if we had more we would give more in a heartbeat."
