    NY - Carol Ryan, 42, Jamesville, 1 Sept 1996

    http://watertown.ynn.com/content/top...years/?ap=1&MP

    ~snip~

    Someone, in the early morning hours of September 1, 1996, brutally beat 42-year-old Carol Ryan beyond recognition and left her to die at the entrance of the Onondaga County Resource Recovery Agency in Jamesville.

    Carol Ryan lived in Eastwood at Grant Village Apartments. Her mode of transportation?
    Her feet. She often walked to where she needed to go. Including a local bar not far from her home.

    "The last place she was seen alive for sure was the East Room Tavern on James Street in Eastwood section of the city,"

    "She was last seen leaving the bar wearing a black jacket with fringe. A silver silk blouse and dark colored jeans,"

    the perpetrator had taken some type of explosive device. I think we speculated it might have been an M80. Placed it in her vagina and set it off," said Onondaga County District Attorney William Fitzpatrick

    A heinous, despicable, indescribable crime


    Maybe we can help this family find out who did this to their loved one.
    Bless the beasts and the children
    For in this world they have no voice,
    They have no choice.

    Iíve gone to look for myself. If I should return before I get back, keep me here.

    Very scary, intriguing case. Does anyone really know anything about Carol? Did she have enemies at all?

    CNY/NNY/S. Tier: Case unsolved after 15 years
    Play now
    Once a month, YNN is bringing a cold case to your attention in an effort to help bring the killer or killers to justice. This month, YNN's Joleene Des Rosiers explores the unsettled death of 42-year-old Carol Ryan. Murdered in Jamesville, NY, in 1996.

    JAMESVILLE, N.Y. -- "What struck me, of course, as it did most of the detectives that have worked on this case was the nature of the injuries. Obviously, the perpetrator had taken some type of explosive device. I think we speculated it might have been an M80. Placed it in her vagina and set it off," said Onondaga County District Attorney William Fitzpatrick

    A heinous, despicable, indescribable crime. Someone, in the early morning hours of September 1, 1996, brutally beat 42-year-old Carol Ryan beyond recognition and left her to die at the entrance of the Onondaga County Resource Recovery Agency in Jamesville.

    "She was still alive, even after suffering this blunt trauma and the explosive device, she was still alive," said Detective Keith Hall.

    "This is one of the most gruesome deaths that I had ever seen. The use of an explosive. The extensive beating said Onondaga County Sheriff Kevin Walsh.

    For her son, Shawn Hamilton, the pain of her death is unbearable even after 15 years. His mother will never know his family.

    "I pray. I pray a lot. I know that she's still looking out for me," Hamilton said.

    Carol Ryan lived in Eastwood at Grant Village Apartments. Her mode of transportation?
    Her feet. She often walked to where she needed to go. Including a local bar not far from her home.

    "The last place she was seen alive for sure was the East Room Tavern on James Street in Eastwood section of the city," Fitzpatrick said.

    "She was last seen leaving the bar wearing a black jacket with fringe. A silver silk blouse and dark colored jeans," Hall said.

    She left alone. Somehow, somewhere, she found company. They beat her, drove her to the side of Route 91 in Jamesville, dumped her body at the entrance of the OCRRA site and then detonated an explosive device in her pelvis. She lay there for at least three hours, moaning, fighting for her life.

    "She was discovered a little after 5 o'clock in the morning on September 1, 1996, by a passing motorist. He was on his way to fish," Hall said.

    "He saw something alongside the road," said Walsh.

    It was Carol Ryan. Barely alive. EMTs moved fast to save her. But she died during surgery. And authorities have never stopped looking for her killer.

    "The reason that we're even discussing this case is because we feel certain that there are people out there that may have seen something either that night or the following morning or in the 15 years since that have some information. They may be afraid of this person, justifiably so. We can make efforts to protect them. We can put them in protective custody. We can move them. We can do a lot of things. But we need someone to come forward and give us the missing pieces that we need to finally solve this case," Fitzpatrick said.

    "The guilt can weight on people. And it can be the thing that triggers somebody to come forward. Not that they necessarily were the ones who did it, but they have that guilty knowledge on who committed this crime," said Walsh.

    "My Mom was gruesomely beaten and killed. And what kind of closure can you ever have on that? I have to live the rest of my life like this. With these thoughts, with these feelings," Hamilton said.

    "This is one of those cases that she sustained such traumatic injury, that everyone has a vested interest in this in getting it closed. We look to the public. If you have any information or any recollection about things that may have been mentioned to you in 1996 or even recently. Give us a call," said Hall.

    Carol Ryan's personal affects have never been found. Her purse. A red, ruby ring. Fitzpatrick believes the killer went to great lengths to get rid of these items in an effort to hide any DNA evidence. But some evidence still remains. And new technology is bringing them even closer. All they need now is that one tip from you.

    Right now, this case is unsettled. And it's up to you to turn it around. Remember, you can and will be protected. Call (315) 435-3081 with any information you have on the 1996 killing of Carol Ryan.

    what kind of animal!!!! Who did she usually pal around with? Didi she have many acquaintances/drinking buddies at the bar? Maybe a fight was brewing or some bad feelings (someone looked at someone the wrong way, took someone's drink off the bar---all seemingly silly things that get blown out of proprtion when alcohol is involved). Was her apartment ransacked??????? Maybe the murdered took her keys and went thru the apartment.
    The greatest trick the Devil ever played was convincing the world he didn't exist.

    Three candles that illume every darkness: truth, nature, knowledge.


    "There, isn't this a beautiful piece of cloth!", exclaimed the swindlers, as they described the lovely design that didn't exist.

    Did she have any enemies? Did she live a high risk lifestyle? What was her line of work? Was Jamesville a rough town? Was she dating anyone, married? There are so many missing pieces.

    Police shine light on 20-year-old cold case

    http://wrvo.org/post/police-shine-li...-case#stream/0

    On the 20th anniversary of a heinous murder in Onondaga County, police are hoping a reward helps crack what remains an unsolved case.

    Onondaga County Sheriff Gene Conway was a captain of investigations for the sheriff’s department at the time and was called to the scene, which he says he will never forget.

    “For me that’s what makes it most personal. That somebody went to the extent that they took, in order to take her life," said Conway at a news conference in Syracuse Wednesday.
    Conway is hoping that a $10,000 reward will revive some memories of that late summer night, and help investigators in what has been a continuing probe. The sheriff says 20 years is not too long to break a case.

    “The fact that leads have been worked on as recently as last week, is testament to the fact that a homicide is something we never ever let go of. And though time passes, it doesn’t necessarily mean, that the chances diminish to find whoever is responsible for the crime,” said Conway.
