Double Murder Cold Case Sees New Interest
GREENVILLE -- A cold case double murder could be heating up after 17 years. Denny Young and Kimberly Stephan were shot and killed in February 1997 on Chippewa Street in Greenville, and now Young's brother is trying to spark renewed interest in the case by increasing the reward money to $10,000.
Young's brother Stephen is also working with Darke County Crime Stoppers to come up with a new way to catch the killer.
"It's a memory you'll never forget especially being a brother," said Setphen Young standing on the street where the crime happened. He remembers the murders like it was yesterday.
"He just shot her... but Denny, he did a number on him," Young said. He hadn't been back to the scene of the crime in 13 years, but after all that time he wants to offer more money and renew interest in the case because he believes he knows who killed his brother Denny, and Kimberly.
"Ninety-nine percent sure we know who did it," Young said. "Just gotta get enough evidence to put him behind bars. I just think every day that person that did it he knows who he is, he has lived a good life for 17 years and my brother's laid dead. So its time for something to be done with him."
"We have a lot of local Facebook pages and groups that actually like to talk all day long about everything that goes on," said Clinton Randall, President of Darke County Crime Stoppers. Randall said that's the Crime Stopper's new goal for the case; get people talking again.
"There are some leads that have come out of the talking," Randall said.
That's exactly what Stephen Young is hoping for by reaching into his pockets.
Because for him, time is worth more than money.
"I've got some battles of my own right now," he said, "I've got stage four cancer so I'm fighting that. I'd sure like to see something happen before it's my turn."
Crime Stoppers detectives said Kimberly Stephan's estranged husband was initially a person of interest in the case, but was never arrested or charged.
