It's been more than a year and a half since Sue Jones was found murdered in her Scott County Home. It's an event that haunts her daughter every day.

"I cry every day, I pray every day," explained Sue's daughter, Gail Jones.

On February 4, 2010, Sue Jones was found dead in her home near Sadieville. The same day, then Scott County Sheriff Bobby Hammons handed the case to Kentucky State Police investigators, citing a massive case load, including a double murder. Now, Scott County sheriff's deputies are back on the case because they've been getting some tips.

"Our detectives were referring them to Kentucky State Police," explained Lt. Jearl Porter, with the Scott County Sheriff's Office. "We had no idea if these people were calling State Police to follow through or didn't want to mess with it. Maybe they'd feel more comfortable talking to somebody local."

Even though its not an arrest, having sheriff's deputies assist on the state police case is easing some grief for Jones' family.

"I know somebody knows something--they're not going to tell State police because it's been too long," a tearful Gail Jones explained. "I want justice for my mom. It's only fair. She was taken wrongly and somebody's got to pay for what they've done."

Gail Jones says she has also raised a $5,000 cash reward for information leading to an arrest.
