    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. :(

    Family of Jody LeCornu continues searching for answers in death
    Towson University student was fatally shot on March 2, 1996

    "TOWSON, Md. —
    Twenty-one years after her death, the fatal shooting of Jody LeCornu remains unsolved.

    The mysterious cold case over who killed the 23-year-old Towson University student is now turning into a legal battle for control of the police investigative file.

    This case is testing the boundaries of the Maryland Public Information Act with court papers disclosing Baltimore County police’s reluctance and resistance to cooperate on any every level.

    Court filings reveal a contentious legal fight resorting to name calling and accusations of unprofessional conduct. At issue is whether Baltimore County police should turn over its 21-year-old cold case file to the family of LeCornu, who was shot to death March 2, 1996.

    “We just want to find out what happened to Jody and to do this battle, it’s slowly killing me inside,” Jenny Carrieri, LeCornu’s identical twin sister, said.

    Carrieri is suing Baltimore County police to get the case file and hand it over to a private investigator..."

    Renewing interest in LeCornu cold case (with video of twin sister)

    "The Baltimore County Police Department is still investigating the 1996 murder of Jody LeCornu, who was killed in Towson. Her twin sister, Jenny, describes what is known of the murder scene in an effort to renew interest in the case. (Lloyd Fox, Baltimore Sun video)"

    (This thread will open as soon later today after Jenny makes her first post)


    Dear Websleuths Members,

    We were contacted by Jody LeCornu's sister Jenny Carrieri. Jenny asked for help in the 21-year-old cold case of her sister's murder.

    When you start digging in you will soon feel the frustration Jenny has felt all these years.

    Things got so bad that Jenny actually is suing the Baltimore County PD.

    Jenny is going to be a guest on tonight's Websleuths Radio (Tuesday March 7th).

    The show airs at 8:00 PM Eastern TONIGHT. After we speak with Sheryl McCollum about the Abby Williams and Libby German murders Jenny will be our guest.


    CLICK HERE to listen LIVE The link is also good if you want to listen later or download the episode

    Here are some articles and other media to help you catch up.

    You'll find the police have a video of the alleged killer, the type of car he was driving, witnesses, fingerprints, more videos from surrounding businesses, it is just nuts this hasn't been solved by now.

    Jenny is now a verified member of Websleuths and will be joining in this discussion in the coming weeks. Her user-name? JennyCarrieri. Please Welcome Jenny to Websleuths.

    21 years is too long for Jody's loved ones.

    Thank you in advance for your help with Jody's case.

    Hi Everyone,

    Below is a message from Jenny. She will be posting later in the case.

    Don't forget tonight Jenny will be on Websleuths Radio to discuss her sister's murder.

    Show starts at 8:00 PM Eastern. Jenny will be on around 9:00 PM Eastern. You can listen live HERE

    Here's Jenny's post:

    "Hello, my name is Jenny Carrieri. I have been talking to Trish and I'm reaching out for your help.


    My identical twin sister, Jody was murdered March 2, 1996, on my parents wedding anniversary, in Baltimore, Maryland in the Caldor parking lot on York RD. My father prosecuted violent crime and drug cases and has since died of cancer.


    Jody and her boyfriend had gotten into a fight that morning and he told her not to come home. She went to work at her job at the bank. Then she went to the Mount Washington Tavern and stayed till closing time. After driving an employee home, she drove to the parking lot and sat and made several phone calls. One of the phone calls was back to the bar. It was snowing that night. Everything Jody did that night was out of character. She had a lot of anxiety and she never would've driven in the snow, driven somebody home she didn't know or gone to sit in a dark parking lot.


    Witnesses saw a black male in a white BMW approach her vehicle. Her window was rolled down and there was some sort of communication and as she drove away he shot her. She was able to drive across a 5 lane Rd. into a larger parking lot where the giant 24 hour food store was. The bullet had gone into the back of her car and into her back and severed her spine.


    She was able to drive a little bit longer and she circled the parking lot and he stayed at the top and watched her. Shortly after, she came to a stop, I believe after hitting a curb. He drove over to her with witnesses around and reached in over her body, put her car in park and took something out of her car and got into his car and took a right on York Road.


    There are witnesses, fingerprints, suspects and four videos from that night.


    The Baltimore County Police Department have mishandled her case. They have lied to me, contradicted themselves, not followed up on leads, been inappropriate and disrespectful. I filed an MPIA (Maryland public information act) request for her file. They denied my request. Now, I am in the process of suing Baltimore County and Baltimore County Police Department for her case file. They are fighting me every way they can. They are trying to dismiss my case. She died on the Baltimore County/ Baltimore city line. I've had Baltimore city please reach out to try to help with her case and Baltimore County denied their help.


    Please help in any way you can with her case.


    Thank you".

    Where are the checks and balances with regard to a police department's misconduct? Is there a way to escalate this case beyond the Baltimore County Police department? Jenny Carrieri and the LeCornu family deserve justice!

    Tricia's radio interview was very good and is a good stating point to become familiar with the case.
    http://www.blogtalkradio.com/websle...uths-radio-3717-the-murders-of-abby-and-libby

    Also, just watched all of the videos posted above.

    The 1430 Connection radio interview and the Crime Stoppers Daily videos are especially
    enlightening. They all give you a very good overview of the case so far.

    Just MOO here but it seems like LE in Baltimore have a lot to work with.
    Off the top of my mind:
    - Fingerprints
    - Suspect's Car Description
    - Videos of Cameras nearby
    - Some eyewitness accounts from nearby
    - Phone records
    - Description of Suspect
    - Know last whereabouts and movements (tavern and thereafter)
    - Known last acquaintances
    - The car she was in and its contents

    How awful to lose Jody in such a cruel manner and then have to go through all of this to try and get justice for her.

    Have you contacted the political representatives for the area, Jenny? If you could get one of those on your side (the higher profile the better), then the police department might suddenly become a bit more co-operative...
