CLARK COUNTY Ky. (WKYT) - Clinging to each other, just like they did the night their son was killed, Carl and Crystal Reese say they've spent the past four years holding on to each other for strength.
"We go to work and put smiles on our faces but still deep inside we hurt. There are a lot of nights you lay there and cry thinking about it," Carl Reese said through tears.
Friday marks four years since their only son, Robbie Reese, and his friends Clayton Edge and Dustin Browning were shot and killed.
Kentucky State Police say they were murdered in their sleep after a party at a home on Pine Ridge Road in Clark County.
Crystal Reese says when her son didn't come home she stopped calling their house a home.
"I had to get out of the house basically, so we moved, but I still have all his stuff," she said as tears streamed down her cheeks.
They say they don’t know any more now than they did the day their son was killed.
However, they still have hope that investigators will solve the three murders.
"I believe one day we'll get justice, one day we'll get an answer. It won't bring him back but at least we can go on with our lives," Carl Reese said.
They say until they get the closure they've desperately been waiting for, they'll keep holding on to each other.
For the third year, the families of the three men will meet at the Clark County courthouse for a candlelight service.
They say this year's vigil will be painful, like all the rest, because they still don't know who pulled the trigger or why their loved ones were killed.
The public is invited to attend the vigil which will be at 6 p.m. Saturday.
