BALTIMORE - Towson University student Jody LeCornu was found shot to death in her car 28 years ago.

The case remains unsolved with no arrests.

The 23-year-old was shot in the back on March 2, 1996, while at a shopping center in the 6300 block of York Road, according to Baltimore County Police.

Police said she tried to escape from her attacker by driving across the street to another shopping center, but the shooter followed. Investigators say a suspect reached into her car before driving away in a white BMW.

"We do believe that someone had to be in the area during that time which is why, again, we're trying to put the pieces together," Baltimore County Det. Trae Corbin said.

Jennifer Carrieri, Lecornu's twin sister, has been fighting for answers all these years. 

She told WJZ that she never thought her sister's case would go unsolved for this long.


Carrieri pleads for someone to come forward with new information that would heat this Cold Case.

"The day she died, my life changed forever," Carrieri said.

For nearly three decades, Carrieri has been on a mission to find her sister's killer.

"It's hard to believe that it's been that long but it can still feel like it was just yesterday," Carrieri said.

Carrieri told WJZ that detectives have evidence in the case.

"They have six witnesses and fingerprints and video," she said. "It's hard to believe that it's not solved."

She's tried to help investigators. A few years ago, she put up a series of billboards to help bring in tips.

Carrieri is hoping this will be the last anniversary she will spend without knowing who murdered her sister.

"Please come forward," Carrieri said. "We've been through hell, and not even back from hell, just going through all of this, and if you know something, even if it's something you think is not important, just call in and report it," Carrieri said. "Just do the right thing."

Anyone with information can call Baltimore County Police or Metro Crime Stoppers.
