Police have been baffled for nearly two years about an unsolved homicide. News On 6 crime reporter Lori Fullbright reports police need help to finally put the case to rest.

Walter and Grace Brown were brutally murdered inside their home, tied up and beaten to death.

The couple was known for their Bible studies on the front porch and sharing their catches of fish with neighbors.

"They were an elderly couple, didn't have any enemies, everyone appeared to like them. This has really baffled detectives," said TPD Officer Leland Ashley.

Detectives did recover a lot of solid evidence from the scene of the crime, but what they don't have is a good lead, pointing them in a new direction.

The Brown's family has been devastated by the loss and the lack of an arrest.

Police say any information you have, no matter how seemingly insignificant, is worth sharing.

"Maybe heard someone just talk about it, you think it's just a conversation, please go ahead and give us a call," said Officer Ashley.

Police want to close this case for the family as well as the citizens of Tulsa who were so touched by what appears to be such a vicious and random act of violence.

Anyone with information can stay completely anonymous by calling 596-COPS.  If your tip leads to an arrest, the Citizens Crime Commission will pay you a cash reward, through a secret code system.
