The FBI has launched a public relations campaign to catch the killer or killers of two district attorneys and one of their wives, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Gov. Rick Perry and Kaufman County Crime Stoppers chipped in $200,000 for a reward for the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for killing Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland, his wife, Cynthia, and Assistant District Attorney mark Hasse.

The FBI also is posting information about the murders on billboards throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, New Mexico and Mississippi.

“Words cannot describe the shock and grief this community has suffered over the last several months,” Perry said in a press release. “The criminals responsible for these murders will be caught, convicted and will pay the price for these horrific crimes.”

Both prosecutors were killed this year, and authorities are investigating possible ties between the killings and the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas, a prison gang.
