No Leads In Murders Despite $120,000. Reward Offer

The Keeffe Murder: One Year Later
Ted Fioraliso--WENY News

November 16, 2007

ATHENS -- Saturday marks a year since a Northern Tier lawyer and his wife were shot to death. A year later, and no arrests have been made.

Last November, police found David and Carol Keeffe dead in their garage in Athens. The couple was planning to go to cape cod for the weekend -- but never made it. Police say both were shot with a shotgun.

David was a lawyer at the DeSisti and Keeffe Law Firm in Sayre, and was president of the Bradford County Bar Association.

“I miss the meetings the meetings we would have with the bar association. And even meetings I had with him discussing various cases. Just getting that feedback from him that he would very thoughtfully dissect the problem and then come up with a solution,” said Jonathan Foster, a friend and fellow lawyer.

The Bar Association and Keeffe's law firm are offering a $120,000 reward. Foster says he's sad there are no solid leads yet.

“When we went out and raised the money, there were hopes that if there was a reward fund out there, it would bring a lot of leads and tips to the police that would lead to an arrest. And that's a disappointment,” he said.

Foster says in January, the Bar Association will give an award to and outstanding member of the bar in honor of David -- and another award to a community member in honor of Carol.
