SOUTH SALT LAKE — Greg and Heidi Miller say it's too painful and emotionally draining to think about it all the time.

But on the second anniversary of the death of Heidi's mother, Sherry Black, they are still seeking closure to the unsolved crime.

On Nov. 30, 2010, Black, 64, the mother-in-law of Larry H. Miller Group CEO Greg Miller, was found stabbed to death inside her bookstore, B&W Billiards and Books, 3466 S. 700 East. To date, there is no known motive for the killing and police have not identified a suspect or a person of interest in the case.

The only clues to the Black's killer are an Armani Exchange men's belt that was left at the crime scene and blood that possibly came from his hand. The DNA is now in a national database and checked weekly for a match.

"What we need is that one shred of evidence that is going to pull all this evidence together," said South Salt Lake Police Department officer, Gary Keller.

Deseret News:

One by one, volunteers have posted flyers about Sherry Black's murder throughout her South Salt Lake neighborhood.

"Heidi and Greg Miller do so much for this community, and for us as an organization, and this is the least we can do," said Utah Jazz president, Randy Rigby.

Detectives believe Black's killer was from, or still lives in that neighborhood, Keller said. That's why they're supporting the Millers' efforts to keep Sherry Black's story alive in the public eye.

As part of the new campaign, the Millers have increased the ongoing $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible to $100,000 — but only until Dec. 31.

Any information about the case should be reported to Lieutenant Ruth at 801-412-3633 or emailed to druth@southsaltlakecity.com. Tips may remain anonymous.
