The family of a murdered mother and daughter are hoping a reward will lead police to their killer. 

It's been about three months since the deaths of Kathy and Samantha Netherland in Nelson County.

Family members announced Wednesday that they were offering a reward to help investigators crack the case.

State Police would not say how Kathy Netherland, 48, and her daughter Samantha, 16, were murdered.

But investigators said the killer was filled with rage.

Police said the victims were murdered inside their home on the evening of April 21, 2014.

No arrests have been made.

Stacey Hibbard is Kathy's sister and Samantha’s aunt.

She said the two lived very ordinary lives and said there were no words to describe the pain the family had endured.

“We are here today to remember Kathy and Samantha and that is has been three months since they were taken from us. The pain has settled in, not quite as suffocating as in the beginning. We love them and we miss them every day.”

There is a $2,500 reward for information leading to a successful arrest.

State Police said the attacker or attackers were in a black Chevrolet Impala.

Troopers said that surveillance cameras spotted the car heading away from the crime scene toward Bardstown the night of the murders.

They believe that the Impala holds the answer to closing this case.

Anyone with information on the double murder is asked to call the Kentucky State Police in Elizabethtown at (270) 766-5078.
