Weeks after the five-year anniversary of The Lane Bryant store shooting that killed five women in Tinley Park, investigators are asking for fresh eyes on the case.

The massacre on Feb. 2, 2008 is suspected to be a robbery-gone-wrong, but area police reportedly plan to hire a specialist to review the evidence.
 
Three detectives are still assigned full-time to the case and the Tinley Park Police Department has reportedly spent nearly $2 million on the investigation.
 
The money for the consultant would need to be appropriated in the budget for the 2013 fiscal year, which begins in May, according to the Chicago Tribune.
 
A specialist has not yet been selected, but the team will begin to search more in depth once the budget is confirmed, the Tribune reported.
