Couple found dead in vacant field off I-94, killers still at large 6 years later

- It's been six years since a young Macomb County couple was murdered in cold blood and their killers are still at large.

The families not giving up hope for justice, and they're hoping you can be the one to crack the case.

The mother of Tony Velez is determined to bring his killers to justice. Six years ago, Velez and his girlfriend Rosemary Chyz were found dead in a vacant field off I-94. They were robbed, tied and shot execution style in the head.

"I don't get to hear his voice. I don't get to hear him laugh. There are no Christmas presents," she said.

Lisa Puma believes the young couple was setup. She says her son agreed to buy $6,000 worth of electronics from someone on Craigslist. Instead, his killers stole the cash, and took two innocent lives.

"We need them off the streets so they don't get to continue living like this and putting other families through this because it's not going to stop here - and it probably hasn't stopped here," she said.

Puma is also convinced there are people who know key details about this case but have kept quiet. She's hoping the hefty reward money will get them to speak up.

"Just a big hole - a hole that's never going to go away no matter what's done. But it will help knowing that they get justice, so please call," she said.

Crime Stoppers is announcing a cash reward up to $7,500 for information leading to the arrest for the murder of Anthony Velez and Rosemary Chyz.
