Lengthy article with lots of detail, includes video. rbbm December 16, 2014 http://www.democratandchronicle.com/story/news/2014/12/16/wendy-jerome-cold-case-rochester/20510947/ "Marlene Jerome doesn't cry much anymore. There were tears when an officer came to her Denver Street door on Thanksgiving night in 1984 and told her that her daughter had been raped and killed, left lying near a Webster Avenue school a couple blocks from her home. There have been some tears looking through a box full of her daughter's items — the ones that her late husband didn't throw away in an effort to help Marlene move on — her Smurfs, her miniature Care Bears, her diary. There were tears at birthdays — Wendy was born Nov. 1 and she would have turned 42 this month. But for the most part, she keeps the tears at bay. Marlene has trained herself not to get overly emotional, she explains, for a day she is sure will come. Wendy Jerome was 14 when she was raped and beaten to death Nov. 22, 1984. She was found lying in an alcove of Schools 33 and 11 by a man who said he found her body as he was walking by that evening. As the years have come and gone, Wendy has become a cold case — never closed or dismissed by Rochester Police Department homicide investigators, but inevitably pushed deeper into a filing cabinet by newer murders"
