GREENVILLE COUNTY, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A day at the park with her two little ones puts a smile on Chicketa Huff Hamilton's face. However, she wishes one person in particular could have met them.

"Now that I have children-I miss her. I know she would've been a great Auntie," Hamilton said.

On June 7, 2006 someone went to Boulder Creek Apartment E-1 and inside shot and killed her sister, NiShan Huff.

"It's really, really tough and just not knowing who did it, it's even worse," Hamilton said.

The Huff case is one of 70 homicide and missing persons cold cases investigators with the Greenville County Sheriff's Office say they are working to solve.

"I don't think time heals anything, I think only God can heal wounds," Hamilton said."I just feel like if we could get answers it would be a whole lot better for the family."

Investigators also highlighted other high-profile cases like the Andra Rosemond and Rahja Louris case with billboards and fliers. Someone shot and killed them both at a home on Club Road on November 19, 2003.

"A lot of times these scenes have been drastically altered over time, new inhabitants," Sgt. Ryan Flood said.

Investigators say they're doing what they can, but need tips to heat up what's considered cold cases.

"If every single bit of evidence, interview and investigative technique has been exhausted with not loose ends, then at that point it could be turned over to cold case," he said.

Flood is with the Greenville County Sheriff's Office. He says investigators return to scenes, question neighbors and potential suspects. He says they also use social media to generate leads.

"Also utilizing some of the new technologies such as DNA evidence to re-examine some of the evidence that has been collected from previous crimes," Flood said.

He says he understands families are hurting.

"Just know that they're never forgotten and they're always on our radar," Flood said.

It's a journey that hasn't been a walk in the park for Hamilton and her family, but they pray for justice.
