WICHITA, Kan. - In March, 1995, 22-year-old Christopher Spivey was murdered at his home in the 200-block of North Elizabeth in Wichita's Delano district.

Spivey had been beaten to death and shot in the throat. There were no signs of forced entry and a weapon was never found.

Police say there were likely multiple attackers and that Spivey fought back hard.

The former United States Marine was last seen alive the night before, leaving the McDonalds at 122 North Seneca, where he was training to become a manager.

Lisa Dean has had her questions unanswered for 19 years. She's Spivey's stepmother.

"There were things missing from his apartment. Again, no forced entry makes you wonder- did he know who it was? Did he get up and let them in his door? Or was he asleep with the door open and did they walk right in?", Dean asks.

Though some articles claim Spivey was a loner, Dean says he was outgoing and had many friends.

""He was very family-oriented," Dean says. "He was very much a people person. And anybody who was at his funeral that day can attest to how full that church was."

Christopher Spivey's name is etched here on a memorial for Parents of Murdered Children, in Midtown Wichita. It's a reminder of his memory and also, the search for his killers.

Dean urges anyone with information to come forward now.

""I think it's time now," she says. "How long are people going to cover up for these murderers? There are people out there that know what happened and it's time to come forward. It's time to give this family some peace."
