CENTREVILLE, Va. (WUSA) -- The family that murder victim Jose Rosales worked for is planning to offer a $25,000 reward to help find the handyman's killers.

Fairfax County Police stopped traffic in the same spot where the two murder suspects are believed to have gotten away last week after killing 39-year-old Rosales, a native of Guatemala and father of two. Police believe the suspects were trying to rob the residence.

"It's scary that they could still be on the loose. Kind of creepy. I hope they find them soon and put them in jail," said Karina Rivera, a resident of Centreville.

"I live right down the road, and I hadn't heard about. I'm kind of embarrassed. I'm shocked," said Sean Sullivan, who lives nearby.

It's residents like that, who may not have heard about the killing, that police are hoping to reach. They're hoping someone saw something at the intersection of Compton road and Bay Valley Lane.

The suspects are black males, both about 5'10". The younger one is in his younger 20s and was heard using the nickname Slim. The other man appeared to be close to 30 years old. A witness saw a person who resembled one of them jump into the back of an older model white Toyota pick up truck with dark tinted windows.

The family plans to offer its reward through Crimesolvers, but details have not been finalized yet.
