More than two weeks have passed, and images of a crime scene haven't left Carrie Folsom; the story of an elderly couple, Bob and Nancy Strait.

Their 65 year marriage ended with a violent assault that would ultimately take Nancy’s life. Bob was left with a broken jaw and fractured ribs.

"I (was) raised to always respect your elders,” said Folsom.

She’s been following updates on TV and online. When she heard one person, Tyrone Woodfork, had been arrested for the crime she grew frustrated.

"The fact that there are people out there and they're not saying anything is sickening,” said Folsom.

Police are looking for at least five potential suspects. Folsom wants to help find them, so Monday night. She created a facebook page Justice for Bob and Nancy Strait.

It’s already grabbed quite a following.

"If it has to be my face and my voice to put out there to find this couple, I have to do it," said Folsom.

She figures word of mouth is the best way, and just about everyone is connected online.

"It needs to be known, it’s happening in everybody's back yard," said Folsom.

She never knew the Straits, but it didn't matter.

"She resembles my grandma,” said Folsom.

This weekend, people in the neighborhood will begin an alert neighbors program.

Yep....not to mention they wait for some citizen to find the criminals for them, I found one the other day, called it in, waited for over an hour and watched the guy, not one cop showed up, called Crime stoppers when I got home, and they told me to call back when I could give them more information about the guy. I used to get really incensed when no one would give the cops information, now I understand.

One thing that everyone needs to know is the failure of TPD. Anyone can see the evidence in the fox 23 news clips. I am aware of this because I am their next door neighbor. In the video clip when the police arrive on seen you can see their car car that was stolen sitting in the driveway. The police weren't gone 5 minutes and the car was gone. Woodfork and his friends watched from the street and waited for them to leave. If you look at the news clips you then see that same car notice license plates. When one neighbor began to point this out the day of the invasion they were told to leave and any more interference with their investigation DHS would come take his children(at that time this gentleman was holding a toddler) and just trying to point out these men to the police. The gentleman then did not hesitate to turn around and go home. And TPD wonders why no one will come forward.
