SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- It's been two years since Dorothy Ashley was found in her Springfield home, brutally murdered.

The 76-years-old was killed August 5, 2016. After two years of no answers, her family is desperate to find out who did this.

"It's frustrating...very frustrating," said Belinda Penn, Dorothy's sister-in-law. 

This case has been unsolved for two years, and Springfield Police said it has gone cold.

Dorothy was found murdered in her home off of R Street. Police said there was no forced entry, nothing disrupted and nothing indicating a struggle.

"A shock...very shocked. It has taken a toll on everybody," said Penn. 

There have been no leads on who killed her. Penn said they're now offering a cash reward for information leading to the person responsible.

"Go to the Springfield Police Department. Let them know," said Penn. "Even if you don't think it's important, it could be important."

Police said even though this case has gone cold, it's still a top priority for their detectives. They said they're doing everything they can to make an arrest and close this case.

"We just want to have closure and let her rest in peace," said Penn.
