(KUTV) Jenna Griego said time has done nothing to heal the pain of losing her mother to murder five years ago.

She wants help finding the killer of her mother Alice Griego and Alice's boyfriend Ralph Salazar.

The couple was shot to death then their bodies burned on December 14, 2012.

"It's torn my family apart," she said.

Police determined early on the case was not murder suicide.

Unified Police Detective Ken Hansen said there was no murder weapon found at the scene - an indication someone entered the house on Kesl Drive in Salt Lake County, and killed the couple.

Hansen said the firefighting effort washed away important evidence that could have helped police find the killer.

The case has been cold for a long time.

"You have to be a cold-blooded person with so much hate and ugliness in your heart," Jenna said of the killer or killers.

The loss of her mother, who she said was very loving to her and her four siblings, has caused turmoil in their lives.

Her youngest brother committed suicide after experiencing the pain of losing his mother.

"He couldn't go on without her," she said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Unified Police.

The family has hired a private detective to help them find find the killer too.

"I can't have this go on another five years," said Jenna.
