    Just my opinion, but the pictures you have posted makes it look (to
    me) as if the victims are the criminals. Do you have access to an image
    that shows them together, as a couple, like the one they’ve been showing
    on the local news channels? Or even a picture of the suspect?

    • The pictures were provided along with the announcement about the reward fund. I am not positive, but I would guess they are from the driver’s licenses of the victims. I do not know how to reach the family and would like to have their permission to use a personal photo of the couple. If you know how I may reach them, please let me know at editor@reporternewspapers.net
