ENID, Okla.-- A family seeks comfort and answers, six years after the death of their son.

For half a century, Bill and Linda Johnson have had each other.

The couple built a proud family of four on good fortune, and faith.

"We've been married 54 years, that's a source of pride I think," said Bill.

"This has been the hardest thing, we've ever had happen," said Linda.

Six years have passed since their son Danial was found shot to death inside a Mini Mart, after an apparent armed robbery.

"In some ways it feels like forever, in some ways it feels like it was yesterday," noted Linda.

The murder weighs heavy with Enid police as well.

Detective Robin Bench has spent six years pouring through evidence.

He and countless others in the department have been trying to identify someone in an orange jacket, spotted on surveillance cameras moments after the murder.

"Oh I think about it every week," said Bench. "They're still on the loose, yes, they can still be a threat to the community."

Through their investigation, authorities say they've found a number of witnesses who, despite a hefty reward, have remained tight lipped all these years.

Bill and Linda lean on each other these days, as memories of Danny still shine brightest at night.

"When you're busy, you don't think about it," said Bill.

"In the evenings it's usually the worst," said Linda.

There is currently a $4,000 reward for anyone who comes forward with information that leads to an arrest.
