Police say calls offering information in the 2002 slayings of a Southside Virginia family have increased since a reward was upped to $100,000.
Henry County Sheriff's Sgt. Curtis Spence told the Martinsville Bulletin that the higher reward has generated a lot of information.
Authorities increased the reward in August from $67,000 to $100,000. The higher amount is good through February for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the murders of Michael, Mary and Jennifer Short.
Michael and Mary Short were found dead inside their home in Bassett. Both had been shot in the head.
The remains of the couple's 9-year-old daughter, Jennifer, were found six weeks later in Rockingham County, N.C. She also had been shot in the head.
