  Both William Whitaker, Skyla's father, and Peter Placker, Taylor's grandfather, whom she called 'Dad,' say they haven't listened to the 911 call.
  But both men say they may listen to it, at some point.
 
  Taylor and Skyla were killed six weeks ago. Left along a dirt road.
  William Whitaker said, “It's the hardest thing I've ever had to go through.”
  Now for both the Taylor and Skyla’s fathers, time is split two ways.
  Before and after their girls were killed.
 “Both of those girls were sweet, beautiful, they were really active,” said Whitaker.
  Peter Placker said, “I can sit here and talk to you for 13 years about that girl and I will remember everything there is about her.”
  “We're still in shock. The families are,” said Whitaker.
   Placker said, “I miss her every day. It's hard on me. They couldn't hurt me any worse than they already have.
  More than 500 leads later there are still no answers as to who or why someone hurt the girls. 
  Now both fathers have a plea.
  Whitaker said, “Hopefully somebody they know or somebody they talked to, this will find them. And this will lay heavy on their hearts. Maybe they'll bring the information forward that's needed to get this person or persons off the street. Because I don't want this to happen to anybody else's babies.”
 “I hope it helps crack the case. It's never going to ease my pain. But I mean it will help. Maybe even if for the reason why, I can find out why it happened,” said Placker.
