    NY - Jacquelyn Porreca, 32, slain in salon robbery, Colonie, 21 Aug 2015

    I recently got the shocking news that a friend's sister has been murdered. Her name is Jackie Porreca. She lived and worked in Colonie, NY which is a town just outside Albany.

    She was working alone at a hair salon called Recycled Salon when someone came in and stabbed her brutally in the neck. She succumbed to her injuries 2 days later.

    I never met Jackie, and am not familiar with the area. However her surviving sibling sent me a FB post from a PI firm that has presumably been retained to help with the search. They are called East Coast Investigations and are on Facebook. I was not able to link the post directly, however, this is the crux of what they are posting.

    If anyone has any info, please contact the Colonie police -- If there is anyone not comfortable talking with the police for whatever reason, including anonymity, please contact the private investigators. They have a hotline set up (both contact numbers are BBM below).

    Sincere thanks for taking a look.

    There is a possible lead!



    The department released a sketch of a man observed in the area of the Reycled Salon on the afternoon of Friday, Aug. 21.The man is described as: white male, in his 20’s or 30’s, thin build, blond hair, and blue eyes. He was wearing jeans and a white long sleeve t-shirt with 3 or 4 buttons down the middle, police said.

    The man was observed by a witness walking south on Russell Road before the incident at 52 Sand Creek Rd. around 4:30 p.m. and then he was seen again heading north on Russell Road shortly before hearing the responding emergency vehicles, authorities said, noting that he was seen headed toward the salon and then heading away from the salon.

    COLONIE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – More than a week after a local barber was stabbed at a Colonie salon, her sister is asking for anyone with information to come forward.
    On August 21, Jackie Porreca was fatally stabbed while working alone at the Recycled Salon on Sand Creek Road in Colonie. A week and a half later, investigators still do not have a suspect.
    “Every day you wake up hoping today’s the day,” Porreca’s sister, Janeah Rosecrans, said. “You know…you get that call, ‘We have him,’ and it doesn’t come.”
    [...]

    Police said no murder weapon was found and some money was stolen, but there’s no clear indication that theft was a motive. Authorities also said there’s a lack of physical evidence and a person of interest.

    A map of the area described in the article. Since it was around 4:30 PM you would think more people would have seen him or his image captured on camera.

    Sean Moreland, 32, and Michael Chmielewski, 23, now face murder and robbery charges. Police say they were trying to feed a heroin habit, and did not know Jackie Porreca.

    Michael Chmieleski, 23, and Sean Moreland, 32, are scheduled to be arraigned by state Supreme Court Judge Thomas Breslin on murder charges on Wednesday.
    ---
    An Albany County grand jury on Friday indicted both men — Chmielewski on charges of first- and second-degree murder, robbery and burglary; and Moreland on charges of second-degree murder, robbery, burglary and hindering prosecution.

    Moreland, who has run a construction business, has past arrests that include drug possession. Chmielewski — the recipient of a President's Award for Outstanding Academic Excellence in 2010 from Colonie Central High School — has never been arrested as an adult, police said.

    Sean Moreland and Michael Chmielewski are charged with attacking Jackie Porreca in the salon where she worked last summer. Police say it was Chmielewski who stabbed Porreca in the neck and robbed her of several hundred dollars so the two defendants could fuel their heroin habit. Moreland, police say, was the get away driver...

    The judge is considering what evidence can be used in court once the case goes to trial...

    The attorneys on both sides will reconvene next month, although no trial date has been set.
