LITTLETON, Colo. (CBS4) - The reward for information about the murders of Nicholas Kunselman and Stephanie Hart-Grizzell increased to $100,000 on Sunday. It was 21 years ago on this date when the couple was found at a Subway near Columbine High School in Littleton.

Kunselman, 15, worked there, and Hart-Grizzel, 16, waited for him to get off of work.

A fellow employee later noticed the lights were still on just before 1 a.m. The teenagers' bodies were found behind the counter inside the restaurant.

Investigators say both were shot by at least one unknown intruder.

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office hopes the increased reward will help draw in tips.
