Tips continue in 2002 Va. slayings


Henry County, Va., Sheriff Lane Perry says authorities continue to receive tips concerning the 2002 slayings of the Short family and he expects most of a $100,000 reward will continue.

The reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the murders of Michael, Mary and Jennifer Short expired Tuesday night.

Perry tells WSLS-TV that local, state, and federal agencies contributed money for the reward. He expects most will leave their contributions in the reward fund.

Michael and Mary Short were found fatally shot inside their home on Aug. 15, 2002. The remains of their daughter, 9-year-old Jennifer Short, were found six weeks later in Rockingham County, N.C. She also had been shot.
