It's been almost a year since a prominent Hazard businessman and his wife were murdered in their home.

Roy and Wanda Campbell's case is still open, and police are still searching for leads.

Monday, members of Wanda Campbell's family unveiled a billboard along the Hal Rogers Parkway at the Hyden exit in hopes of one day solving this crime.

It sits at the intersection of a busy highway, a sign asking for answers, asking for justice.

"Words cannot describe it. It's been almost a year and we don't know nothing," said Wanda Campbell's sister Louise Couch.

Roy and Wanda Campbell were murdered in their home on Thanksgiving weekend last year, and to this day, the case still remains open.

"We believe that there is someone out there possibly in Perry County who knows what happened, and why this happened," said Detective Gary Sandlin with Kentucky State Police.

And as dozens of people gathered to unveil this billboard, Wanda Campbell's daughter can only think of one thing.

"Justice. I want justice. I want to know who murdered my mother who assassinated my mother," said Wanda Campbell's daughter Shirley Justen.

She hopes that by placing this billboard right along the Hal Rogers Parkway, someone will see it and call police.

"We want somebody to please please come forward. We know somebody knows something we know they do," said Justen.

And as she waits for justice, all that remains are the memories of her mother.

"And we miss her, we miss her everyday. You know she is gone forever and she is not coming back," said Justen.

Detective Sandlin says there are few leads in the case, and he encourages anyone with any information to call Kentucky State Police in Hazard.
