DARKE COUNTY - The Darke County Crime Stoppers has relaunched a cash reward for information that leads to an arrest of a suspect(s) in the 1997 double homicide in Greenville.

The murders of Kimberly Stephan, 33, and Dennis Young, 55, have gone unsolved for over 15 years. The couple were found shot to death in a home on the 1300 block of Chippewa Drive in Greenville on Feb. 23, 1997. Police detectives said a person of interest has been questioned in the homicide, but charges have never been filed.

“The case is still open for investigation. I feel there is a person or persons that have pertinent information to this case. Dennis and Kim deserve justice, as do their loved ones,” said Det. Eric Roberts of the Greenville Police Department.
