    MD - Joann 'Jody' LeCornu, 23, Towson, 2 March 1996



    http://www.wbaltv.com/news/new-photo...icide/39499596

    The 1996 unsolved slaying of Towson University student Jody LeCornu still haunts her family and police...

    Hours before the homicide, police said LeCornu visited the Mount Washington Tavern. She left to buy beer at a liquor store on Falls Road. Neither police nor her family know why she stopped at what's now the Drumcastle Government Center parking lot...

    The suspect was described as a black man who is 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet 1 inch tall and weighing 200 to 220 pounds. He was described as wearing a green fatigue-style coat. He would now be in his mid-40s to early 50s...

    "He fired a single shot into the car, struck her in the back. After being shot, she managed to drive her car out of the parking lot across York Road to the parking lot where the Giant is located," Wachter said...

    "After the vehicle stopped, the suspect who followed her over there approached the car, reached in, may have put it in park, but definitely took something out of that car," Wachter said. "When he was finished, he got into a white BMW, exited the parking lot southbound on York Road and turned left onto Walker Avenue."
    MSM from 1996:

    The body of Joann E. "Jody" LeCornu was discovered in her white Honda Civic after a delivery crew at the plaza's Giant food store reported hearing gunshots at 3:41 a.m. Baltimore County police say Ms. LeCornu's purse was not in the car, leading them to suspect robbery as a motive, said Capt. Brian Uppercue.

    Investigators have been unable to reconstruct Ms. LeCornu's activities Friday night and Saturday morning... "With all the interviews we've done, we still haven't been able to determine why it is she was down there," Captain Uppercue said. "There's no indication of drugs, or anything like that. It's kind of curious why this guy followed her to Giant -- we don't know why. We don't know if she was meeting someone"...

    Steve Dubin, her boyfriend and housemate... did not get home until about 12:30 a.m. Saturday. He said Ms. LeCornu probably got off work about 5:30 p.m. Friday. When he realized she wasn't home, he said he assumed she was visiting her parents in Annapolis. Her father is John LeCornu, an Anne Arundel County assistant state's attorney.

    "The boyfriend hasn't provided us with a lot, her friends don't know where she was," Captain Uppercue said.

    Finger prints were lifted from inside and outside of LeCornu’s car. Initial record checks of the fingerprints were negative. Those prints are now going to be re-checked to see if there are any matches.

    Detectives believe that the suspect would not have been able to keep the incident to himself. Over the past 20 years they believe that he likely told someone about it.

    Baltimore County Police are releasing pictures from the crime scene hoping to jog the memories of potential witnesses. The snowy images are being made public for the first time.

    Police say, while sitting in her car, LeCournu died from a bullet to the back. Police released a dramatic picture that shows how it traveled through her seat.

    Investigators also released a picture of a white BMW that's similar to the suspect's vehicle.

    What Happened to Joanne LeCornu? Investigators Renew Efforts to Solve the Mysterious 1996 Murder of Blonde Twin

    Snipped:

    Bollinger tells PEOPLE investigators have re-entered the fingerprints they'd recovered from LeCornu's car into the nation's criminal database, hopeful they'll get a hit after all these years.

    He has also been conducting fresh interviews with several persons of interest who've been connected to the case. He's also talking to LeCornu's friends and ex-boyfriends again.

    "We're also trying to develop DNA off of some of the items we'd collected from the scene where previously, we couldn't," says Bollinger. "We are going over video taken at the time, using new technologies. Our video examiners are now able to take apart a video and retract an image from it where you couldn't do that 20 years ago. We're just going back to see if we can shake the tree and get any apples to fall."

    I was just reading about her case. I feel like if we knew why she was in that parking lot at 4a, we'd know why she was killed and by whom.
