The two boys were found beaten and abandoned behind an apartment building on College Avenue in November last year, and to this date police have not identified any potential family members.
The NYPD and Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark gathered to light candles for the twins and call for justice, saying they are still working endlessly to find more information about their death.
Officials are also encouraging the public to provide any assistance possible to identify the boys and help bring justice to their case.
"It's important that we know who did this and why, but more importantly, to make sure that the community knows that we care, that we're never, ever going to stop until we find out what happened and to get justice for two innocent lives," Clark says.
NYPD officers named the infants Zeke and Zane, and held a funeral service for the twins at Eternity Funeral Home in September. They were then laid to rest in a shared coffin and buried at Hawthorne Cemetery.
The NYPD is offering a $10,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest in this case.
Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
