TINLEY PARK, Ill. -- Eight years after five women were found shot to death inside a Lane Bryant clothing store in Tinley Park, police say they believe there are people out there who know the killer's identity.

Since the slayings on Feb. 2, 2008, investigators with the Tinley Park Police Department have received nearly 7,000 leads, and they still continue to regularly get tips.

Family members like Maurice Hamilton, who lost his sister Rhoda McFarland, say they still have hope that the man responsible will be found. Hamilton tells the Daily Southtown that "it's not frustrating" that so much time has passed without an arrest.

A $100,000 reward, most of which was provided by the parent company of Lane Bryant, is being offered in the case.
