SOMERSET, Ky. (AP) — The brothers of two people killed 20 years ago are hoping the public can help find who is responsible for killing their sister and her brother.

Clayton and Jamie Gibson say they've lived in fear for the last two decades since 21-year-old Linda Gibson and 4-year-old Cody Garrett were found dead in a field near Somerset.

"It's been Hell on Earth," her brother Clayton Gibson said. "I mean nobody, you won't never know until it happens to you."

The two were last seen walking to a convenience store. WKYT-TV in Lexington reported (http://bit.ly/1mTWB1P ) their bodies were found were found in a field a few miles away three days later.

Police have said they believe Gibson may have been targeted, and her brother was killed because he was a witness.

Jamie Gibson was 14 when his sister was killed. He says his family has lived in fear for the past 20 years.

"Scared for other people, you know," he said. "Someone might make them mad and they might do it to somebody else, it's frightening."

Clayton Gibson says he plans on holding that sign in the middle of town every evening until his sister's killer is found.

The brothers hope the constant reminder of the murders, in the middle of town, will be too much to take for the conscience of those involved.

"I want the killer to know, or killers, I'm looking for you, and I won't ever stop looking for you, and may God have mercy on your souls," Clayton Gibson said.
