"It was like yesterday. Still can't believe it," said Charlene Sebring.
The body of the Monroe County woman's son, Lee VanLuvender, was found in a remote Monroe County hunting spot 10 years ago to date.
Police say VanLuvender was murdered while hunting and Monroe County Detective Richard Luthcke is still searching for the killer.
"It's such an odd case. No motive...and where the homicide took place," he said.
VanLuvender was found next to his car with multiple gunshot wounds off dirt-and-stone-filled Hypsie Gap Road in Tunkhannock Township.
10 years later, VanLuvender's picture hangs in the Monroe County Detective Unit's office.
"We still have hope someone heard something along the way. Maybe hunters who haven't been back in 10 years are here and see this report and maybe they have information," the detective said.
Luthcke says tips still come in, even as recently as three months ago.
This wouldn't be the first murder cold case to be solved in Monroe County.
In 2016, Richard Kiper was convicted of the 1968 murder of a Bethlehem Steel executive assistant who Kiper shot several times in Chestnuthill Township, providing closure and justice to the family.
In the case of VanLuvender, Sebring is hoping for more than closure.
"I think justice. I want to see him behind bars. I want to have a conversation with him and ask him why," she said.
