DETROIT -

A Macomb County man who was found not-guilty of murdering his parents is now launching a new effort to find the real killer.

Ronald Jabalee Jr. was acquitted of murder charges in 2010 for the deaths of Ronald and Christine Jabalee.

The couple's bodies , bludgeoned and stabbed, were found in their garage in New Baltimore, 40 miles northeast of Detroit, in October 2006. They were 58. Their deaths gained national attention after detectives revealed that months after the initial investigation, a message that read "SSEUIC" was written in Christine Jabalee's blood. The message was found next to the couple's body.

Now, Crime Stoppers says Jabalee Jr. is offering a $10,000 reward of his own money for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the killer.
