Lynchburg, VA - Five years after the brutal murders of their children two Lynchburg area families are still looking for closure, as a task force continues to look for the killer.

The bodies of Heidi Childs, 18, and David Metzler, 19, were discovered five years ago Wednesday in the parking lot of Caldwell Fields in Montgomery County. Investigators believe the couple was killed the night before, between 8:25 and 10:00 p.m. on August 26, 2009.

There has been no new information released in the last two years. The Montgomery County Sheriff revealed at a March 2012 news conference DNA evidence was collected from the scene and that Childs and Metzler were shot with a .30-30 rifle.

A reward for information leading to their killer is now more than $70,000. Call the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office at (540) 382-6900 with information.
