BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - A family is hoping someone will come forward with information almost one year after someone killed their teenage daughter and her boyfriend.

Someone shot David Price’s daughter, Elizabeth Price, and her boyfriend, Ty Pepper, on February 12, 2018.

Elizabeth price and Ty Pepper were found dead on the sidewalk after being shot February 12, 2018.

“She was a big daddy’s girl,” said David.

For David and his family, this past year has been unbelievably painful.

“She said, ‘Could Aubrey take me down to see Ty when he gets off from work? We’ll be home by 9:30, I promise.’ I said, ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah, y’all won’t be home by 9:30.’ And she said, ‘I promise you, daddy, I will.’ And I said, ‘OK, y’all go ahead,'” he said.

That was the last time he saw his daughter.

Price and Pepper were both found shot to death that night.

Birmingham police found the couple dead on the sidewalk on the 1200 block of 12th Avenue North around 9 p.m.

“I think about her every day, every morning when I walk out the hall there to go to work, I have a picture of her hanging on the wall,” said David. “I give her a kiss and tell her good morning and I love her. When I get home I tell her good afternoon and I love you.”

Investigators told us they believed the shooting was not random, and now Price wants someone to come forward with information that could finally give both families peace.

"The hardest thing I think, other than losing my daughter, is not knowing why, who did it, what the purpose was behind it," he said.

If you have any information, call Birmingham police or Crime Stoppers.
