The face of pain, grief and despair from the relatives of 10 murder victims.

"This tragedy has destroyed and put a burden on two families," said one lady.

Another relative added 'he cold-blooded shot my son down.'

Montgomery County District Attorney Ellen Brooks along with Montgomery Police went public today and offered a collective reward of $90,000 or $10,000 per case for any information leading to an arrest and conviction.

"We've reached a dead end," District Attorney Ellen Brooks conceded.

The cases date back to February of 2009 to this past April. The 10 cases were all shootings, 9 men and one woman.

"The vast majority of them were in their 20s, 30s, one in their 40s," Brooks said.

Cut down in the prime of their lives, their families are looking for closure and justice.

"Please come forward," a relative of Nollie 'Bo' Hudgins who was shot and killed on McGehee Road on April 8th.

While the law enforcement community hopes the money will do the trick, no one here is discounting another possibility; a guilty conscience.

"Those of you who are out there and you know you did it, someone's going to tell on you," said Major Brenda Mitchell.

Of all the cases the youngest victim was 19 years old while the oldest was 67. The most recent murder occurred on April 11th on North Union Circle in Montgomery.
