Search continues for NYE killer

The search for a New Year's Day killer continues in Orange County.



Volunteer firefighter Justin Speights, of Middletown, was killed trying to break up a fight at a house party in Crawford.



Police say they have interviewed most of the young partiers who rang in the new year with Speights to no avail.



A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest. Speights' family is also pleading for people to come forward as they prepare for the young man's funeral.



A wake for Speights will be held Thursday at the Transformation Church in Middletown. Funeral services will be held there Friday.
