There's a new push to solve a double homicide gone cold after nearly two years.

Sydney Land and her boyfriend, Nehemiah Kauffman, were shot and killed inside their apartment near Hualapai and Peace ways in October of 2016.

"I want people to come forward," said mom Connie Land, "I want people to do the right thing."

The Land family now has seven billboards across Las Vegas about the unsolved murders.

You have likely seen Sydney's face while driving on the U.S. 95, Interstate 15 or 215. The billboards include a picture of Sydney along with a request for information. They cost $4,500 a month, according to the family.

"We've done news articles, we've done press conferences," said Land, "...you name it."

Connie hopes that someone will come forward with time. She says she refuses to be silent and allow this case to remain unsolved. Connie says this is not just about her daughter.

"Everything that we do is for every other family that is being victimized, and terrorized by the people that did this to her," she said.
