JODY LECORNU: Towson University student murdered in Maryland - 1996

Discussion in 'Cold Cases' started by Kimster, Feb 4, 2017.

    Jody LeCornu, who was a Towson University student at the time of her death, was discovered dead in her white Honda Civic, which was parked not far from her home in the Mount Washington section of Baltimore.

    Police can’t say with absolute certainty that LeCornu knew her killer, who they believe approached her car and spoke with her for a bit before firing a single shot into her back.

    LeCornu tried to escape her killer by driving across the street to the parking lot where her body would be found hours later, according to investigators.

    But witnesses told detectives they saw an African-American man follow her across the street. He reached in through the driver’s side window, which was already rolled down, and shut the car off before taking something from the vehicle.

    On 22nd Anniversary Of Unsolved Murder, Baltimore Co. Police Seek Tips

    Twenty-two years to the day since her death, Baltimore County police continue to seek leads in the murder of Joann "Jody" LeCornu.

    Just before 4 a.m. on March 2, 1996, police were called to the 6300 block of York Road, just north of the city line. Police found LeCornu, 23, in her car, suffering from a gunshot wound. Police found she was shot in the back while in her car on the lot of the Drumcastle Shoppking Center, then drove her car onto York Road and across the street to York Road Plaza.

    Witnesses told police about a male suspect who followed LeCornu's car across the street and took an unknown item from her car. He then drove southbound on York Road in a white BMW. He was described only as a black man with a stocky build and wearing a drab or green Army-style coat.

    Last year, LeCornu's twin sister Jenny Carrieri talked to Robert Lang about her frustrations over the case.

    "They have fingerprints, but they haven't been able to match it up," Carrieri said. "They have several suspects they have videos they have lots of evidence."

    She said her sister was at the Mount Washington Tavern and had an argument with her boyfriend on the night she died.

    “I don’t think it was a random act, I think it was someone she knew," she said. "I think there are people at the Mount Washington Tavern who know things. I just think there are people out there who know."

    Anyone with information is asked to call Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP, text "MCS" followed by a message to CRIMES (274637) or visit their website.

    'Find my killer:' Twin sister plans billboard on road where her sister, Jody LeCornu, was slain in 1996

    About a mile from down the road from where Jody LeCornu was fatally shot in 1996, her twin sister has planned a billboard emblazoned with the young woman’s face and a simple plea — “Find my killer.”

    The billboard is Jennifer Carrieri’s latest push in a more than 20-year effort to keep LeCornu’s memory alive and to draw out new information about her murder.

    “I don't know that everybody watches the news or TV so I'm hoping it reaches someone who doesn't know the story,” Carrieri said of the billboard.

    The new billboard is bright red, with a photo of LeCornu smiling next to an offer for a $32,000 reward and the date of her death. The sign is planned to go up Oct. 29 — one day after the twins’ birthday — in the 5700 block of York Road, near St. Dunstans Road.

    23 Years Later, Police And Family Seek Leads On Woman's Killing

    Jenny Carrieri has been involved in the search for the killer of twin sister Jody LeCornu for almost as long as LeCornu was alive. But even as the 23rd anniversary of LeCornu's death approaches, Carrieri still has hope

    "It's really hard, it really is, and I just put every part of me into this," Carrieri told Robert Lang.

    Carrieri said a billboard her family put up near the scene has, to her knowledge, spurred several tips to police. Carrieri is also coordinating several new billboards in Baltimore City, at 3827 Pulaski Hwy., 1900 S. Hanover St., and 2540 Greenmount Ave. She's also made a number of pleas in national media, including on HLN and recently in People magazine.

    "I just feel like hopefully somewhere somebody's going to hear something," Carrieri said.

    I really hate when a large reward is posted because it is felt that is the only way it is thought any information will be given. Then that person holding that info should get NOTHING!
