BOONEVILLE, Ky. (LEX 18) -  Imagine walking across the street to your parents' house, and finding them shot and killed.

Cristina McQuinn lived that unthinkable nightmare in Owsley County in May of 2016.

More than 18 months later, no one is in jail for that crime, and she's begging for answers.

"It feels like it happened yesterday," said Cristina McQuinn. "I have people, still today, reaching out to me and telling me how much they loved my parents, and how much they miss my parents."

She lived across the street from her parents, John and Ada McQuinn, on Wilson Lane in Booneville. It's a quiet neighborhood that Cristina had to eventually move away from.

"I couldn't stay across the street. I couldn't look at that house," said McQuinn.

Her sister, Lynette Renee McQuinn, was arrested and charged with shooting their parents while they slept.

After 60 days passed, she was not indicted for double murder, and by law was released.

Just days later, police arrested Lynette in August 2016 after finding her near her parents' home. Officers say she had drugs in her purse. This is the explanation Lynette gave to the judge in court.

"I just wanted to leave the memories behind in the home. I did not enter the home, and I walked away, I was gonna walk away for good, sir. I was leaving Owsley, that's all I was doing. I swear on my life," said Lynette McQuinn in August 2016.

Cristina McQuinn says that's the last she has heard from her sister, who is no longer at Three Forks Regional Jail.

Cristina told us on May 6, 2016, that Lynette was mentally ill, and believed she had killed their parents.

Another holiday season without her mother and father is too much to bear, and hopes speaking out will help police find answers. 

"If anyone has seen her, or knows where she's been kinda hanging around. If she's spoken to anybody, or mentioned anything on this matter, if they could just come tell somebody please," said Cristina.
