Today, the murders of David and Carol Keeffe remain unsolved. Is the lack of progress due to inept investigators, who cannot connect the dots in a double homicide that reeks of an inside job, or was the killer so sly that he had the forethought to cover up all of his tracks? Whatever the reason, police remain tight-lipped about the status of the investigation.
