    I can't find one article about this girl. I find that hard to believe that there isn't something written about this crime.

    She was from St Pete and that is about an hour from Brooksville. I wonder if she was going to school and met some friends that invited her to come to Brooksville to meet up, or she met someone on line? There is nothing about how she died, if she had a purse, or how LE knew where she was from. So little to go on. She could have been abducted from her area and brought up to Hernando and killed.

    The following article is very old on this case, so I'm not sure if any POI has been ruled out - but this is what I could find:

    Thank you, I finally got the link to open. The place where she was found is not a good area at all. If she was on the Internet social sites making dates, it makes the net of suspicion really wide. I know they always check out the men closest to the victim, but in this case, they have to go beyond the bf. He does have assault record, so he is probably first on the list. I wonder why no DNA was matched to him. Maybe the condition of the body and when it was found made it hard to find any transfer of evidence. I am hoping sending out the post cards will get some leads for them.

    I loaded up the tags on this thread-this helps when people Google search. Hopefully we can draw some people familiar with the place, the time, the rumors when she was discovered etc...

    Big Thank you Belive09, anything would help at this point.

    I didn't see a COD or how long they thought she was out there. So sad. This really feels like she hooked up with somebody and they came to Brooksville for some reason and things didn't turn out good for her.

    BROOKSVILLE - The lead Hernando investigator in the slayingof a 19-year-old St. Petersburg woman said Friday that detectives have identified several "people of interest" in the month since her body was found at the end of a remote two-lane road inHernando County.

    One of those people is Dominique Lewis' boyfriend, Jeremy Grisby, who has been in the Pinellas County Jail since Dec. 14 on an unrelated charge of sexual battery. His bond has been set at $100,000.

    "We've talked to him at length for almost 20 hours of interviews," Sgt. Bill Beetz of the Hernando County Sheriff's Office told the Times on Friday. "But he's a suspect with everybody else. We've also talked to some other people of interest in this investigation."



    This article really lays it out and says her bf, Jeremy Grisby, was a POI. Maybe he had connections to Brooksville. Where she was found is not a place you just stumble onto. You don't just go riding around with a body in your car or truck all that way and just find this spot.
