It is a cold case that friends and relatives are trying to keep alive.

They held a vigil at High View Park in Arlington and walked through neighborhood streets to Calloway United Methodist Church in honor of 59-year-old Keefe Spriggs and 31-year-old Carl Moten.

The children of both fathers attended. Spriggs' mother, Ethel, still gets teary talking about it. She told FOX 5 she wants the killer or killers to surrender to police, but does not want the death penalty because that would not bring her son back.

Two women, who are mothers of Moten's children, said they can't believe he is dead, and want the killer to think about their children -- now left without a father.

Spriggs and Moten were found dead in an apartment in the 1900 block of North Culpeper Street a year ago on August 7. Police initially called the deaths suspicious and later ruled them a homicide.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Bob Wright at 703-228-4197.
