ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

St. Charles police are hoping to generate new leads in the case of the Interstate 70 serial killer.

He went on a killing spree in April and May of 1992 and has never been caught. With the anniversary coming up detectives are once again turning to the public for help.

Victims' families say years may pass but the pain will be with them forever.

“Every single day, you think about her wondering what she could have been or accomplished,” Carol Kitzmiller, the mother of 24-year-old Nancy, a victim, said. “We miss her terribly.”

In 1992, Nancy was killed while working at a small store in the Bogey Hills shopping plaza off Zumbehl Road in St. Charles. She was one of the six victims of the man dubbed the I-70 killer because victims from Indiana to Kansas were killed in shops near or along the interstate.

The Kitzmillers say they never thought years later the case would still be unsolved.

Police in several states have tracked down thousands of leads and the FBI was brought in. Authorities released a sketch of the suspect and they say the murder weapon may have been an Erma Werke model et 22 or something similar.

It's a distinctive gun with a nearly foot-long barrel. Over the years police have turned to the public to generate new leads.

“We'll have people who call up and say they remember different things or they knew somebody who looks like the composite we put out,” Detective Don Stepp with the St. Charles Police Department, said. “Or they lately when we put the picture of the pistol out people say 'I knew someone who had one like that.”

They're hoping someone who knows about the killings will finally speak up.

“When I'm working a lead on this and I get to the end of the lead I feel like I'm one step closer to the right lead,” Stepp said.

They're hoping someone will provide the right lead.

Anyone with information should contact the St. Charles Police Department.
