ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) -- A month after the shootings at the Dry River Store, the Rockingham County Sheriff's Office is still looking for the man behind that crime.

"Investigation is very much ongoing and active, it's a slow process, it's very tedious," said Rockingham County Sheriff Bryan Hutcheson.

A month after a store owner was killed, her husband, Jae Kim, remains in critical condition at U. Va. Medical Center.

As their son Paul said he slowly recovers, Hutcheson said people have been calling in a lot of tips.

"We've collected over 200 leads, approximately that have come in and followed up on all of those," said Hutcheson.

Hutcheson won't comment on Eun Kim's autopsy results, which were conducted weeks ago.

With each tip, Hutcheson's goal is to find the truth about what happened the night of February 15.

"We don't have anything to comment as far as rumors go. Our whole intent with this is to conduct a very detailed and thorough investigation and arrest the person responsible for the crimes," said Hutcheson.

The sheriff's office released this picture from security camera footage, a day after the shooting happened.

When asked if more photos will be released, "That is a possibility. Right now at this time we don't have anything, updates to release along those lines," said Hutcheson.

Neighbors who knew the Kims said they were always friendly, but they were also always the first ones to shovel snow out of their driveways because they wanted to be working at their store.

Others who live along the street said they didn't know the family very well because of a language barrier.

As deputies work to follow up on leads, Paul Kim is asking the community to be patient.

"Because they are working very hard so, we should just wait and be patient, and you know, think they got under control what they're doing," said Kim.
