Today was the fifth anniversary of Jeff Rogers' death in a home invasion in Kansas City, Kan.
But yesterday was a more difficult day than today, said his mother, Nancy Euler.
"Leading up to this day, I found myself reliving my night, and I wasn't even there, of five years ago," Euler said today.
She pictured her 25-year-old son, a Schlagle High School graduate, eating dinner and playing his guitar at his home at 82nd and Tauromee.
"Five years ago yesterday, he was still alive," she said.
Euler tearfully asked the public to come forward with any information that might solve this murder case.
There were four or five persons involved in it, said John Frishman, Jeff's uncle. With that many people, "someone knows something," he said.
The Rogers family gathered near I-70 and 110th, where a billboard has been donated to call attention to the unsolved case.
Frishman noted how unlikely it was for his nephew to be a victim of a home invasion, saying that he was not involved with drugs or illegal activities.
Frishman asked anyone with information about the case to call the TIPS hotline at 816-474-TIPS. Family members said there is a $10,000 reward in the case.
