Police are continuing to investigate the deaths of two women who were killed in Phoenix six years ago.

Melissa Mason, 27, and Nicole Glass, 27, were found strangled to death Dec. 3, 2010. At the time of the women's deaths, Mason was two months pregnant.

Police are investigating the incident as a triple homicide.

On the night of their deaths, a woman called 911 after going to the home to visit friends and finding one victim lying on the floor. It wasn't until officers arrived that they found both women dead inside, a police spokesperson said.

Now, six years later, the families are still searching for answers.

On the anniversary of their deaths each year, the victims' mothers hold a candlelight vigil. The families gathered on Saturday near 7th and Lincoln streets to continue bringing attention to the tragic incidents.

As tears flowed down their faces, family and friends were reminded that even six years later, the pain is still very real.

“There’s a huge hole in my heart, and it will never go away," said Rachel Glass, Nicole Glass' mother.

The hurting families have been without answers and closure for the last six years.

“We want to be able to eventually celebrate her life and just have peace with the situation instead of begging for mercy and begging for someone to come forward," Smith said.

In the meantime, the families will keep this candlelight vigil tradition alive, hoping someone will come forward.

“If you have information, no matter how big or how small, maybe it’s something that you assumed that police knew, that’s what the investigators need. Let them look at the puzzle pieces and see if it fits in," said Sgt. Jamie Rothschild with Silent Witness.

Silent Witness is offering a $9,000 reward for information leading to an arrest. Anyone with information is urged to call 480-948-6377 or submit a tip online here.
