TAMPA (FOX 13) -
It's now been a year since two sisters were found murdered in their north Tampa home. But there are still no arrests in the case.
Linda Helms and Vickie Sterling were found shot to death in their home on Lotus Avenue. Detectives say the bodies were found in different rooms of the home.
We're told someone got into the home late in the afternoon and killed the women. The two women were found when someone later went to go check on them.
At the time, detectives tried reconstructing the murders to figure out what happened. But they had very little to go on.
The son and daughter of the two sisters are meeting with detectives today and plan to appeal to the public for help. They are hoping someone out there remembers something that will help lead to an arrest in this case.
Any information that leads to an arrest and conviction are eligible for a $1,000 CrimeStoppers reward, police say.
