Greece, N.Y. -- Tim Milgate died fighting for his life. He struggled with the intruder who confronted him in his home in Greece in the summer of 1995.
Milgate was stabbed 27 times. His sister Debbie Milgate-Moyer tells us: "It's something that was definitely plotted and planned..Tim definitely struggled. You could see in on the carpet and on the walls, you knew he did struggle."
Greece Police are hopeful they may finally have the evidence to make an arrest in this case. Evidence from the murder scene is being tested in New York City. This unique testing will help police learn the DNA profile of the killer.
Debbie Milgate Moyer says she has hoped and prayed all along that her brother's killer would be found. "It will point to the killer, it will definitely point to the killer."
"It's not about remembering Tim, it's about honoring Tim. He has a right to have justice."
Greece Police Chief Todd Baxter says those test results could be complete soon. He is hopeful they will help solve this case.
"It would be great. We are hopeful to get a hit. I am really excited this DNA evidence could prove something for us."
Milgate Moyer has raised over a quarter of a million dollars for local charities in memory of her brother Tim.
She has an annual golf tournament. This year she is also trying something new.
She is teaming up with the family of Taylor Brush. Taylor died at just six months old from complications at birth.
Her family has also honored her memory by raising money for charity. Together, the Milgates and Brushes will hold TNT Explosion.
The event is November 3rd at Pier 45. It begins at 6:00 p.m. Tickets are available at Wegmans.
Proceeds benefit the Golisano Children's Hospital. Milgate-Moyer says the families will buy a room for a child in the new hospital wing.
