IT IS a case to send chills down your spine. A double homicide. A missing girl. No answers. On Aug. 15, 2002 at about 9 a.m. the bodies of Michael and Mary Short were discovered in the Henry County, Virginia home. Michael was found shot in the head while Mary was still in bed--she too had been shot in the head. But their daughter Jennifer, 9, was nowhere to be found. But on Sept. 25, 2002 her remains were found along a stream bed in Rockingham County, North Carolina. She too had been shot in the head.
According to the FBI, several years prior to their deaths, Michael and Mary operated a business
moving mobile homes. Mary was described as a shy, neat and extremely focused individual, who was actively involved in the family business. Jennifer appeared to be a happy little girl experiencing a normal childhood. She was an excellent student and actively involved in organized sports.
The FBI is looking for the man in the above composite who was seen in a truck near the short home on the morning of the murders. One local says she thinks someone local knows something.
She said: "I just hope they find who did this before I leave this world. I think a lot of people do. We just hate that. It's heartbreaking for that little kid that didn't have a chance to grow up."

Law enforcement authorities are seeking the public's help in locating the suspect(s) involved in the murders of Michael, Mary and their young daughter Jennifer Short.
