A Virginia family continues their fight to find the killer of their daughter and unborn grandchild. Sherry Culp was eight-and-a-half months pregnant when she shot in the head by a masked man. The man who murdered Sherry Culp didn't steal a thing except her life, and the life of her daughter, Kelsey. Fairfax police have never described the case as random, or as a robbery. But if they have suspicions of who is responsible, they have never named that person publicly. Even six years later, the pictures of Kelsey bring a surge of emotion to the Young family. The Young family has always believed, Donald Culp, Sherry’s first husband and father of Sherry’s two older daughters is responsible for the killings. Two years ago police searched Culp’s house near Cleveland, after filing an affidavit describing the case as a “murder for hire.” But Culp has never been charged. The couple had gone through a messy divorce, and baby Kelsey was fathered by one of Culp’s former friends. Now Don Culp has a court order keeping the Young’s away from their two granddaughters. Every year on the anniversary of the murders, the Young family visits Sherry’s grave, where baby Kelsey is buried in her mother’s arms. There is a 50-thousand-ollar reward for information leading to the arrest and indictment in this case. If you have any information, call Fairfax County Crime Solvers at 1-800-673-2777.
