In the more than 20 years since Amy Gellert’s murder outside her home in Cocoa Beach, Florida, there have been a number of men investigated in connection with the case - but the crime remains unsolved.

Here’s what investigators do know based on information provided by Gellert’s mother and step-father, Bunny and Bob Lehton, who were held captive and attacked by the intruder:

  • The stranger was dressed all in black except for white tennis shoes.
  • According to the Lehton’s was average height and weight, and they guessed he was in his 20s.
  • The Lehtons couldn’t get a good look at the intruder because he was wearing a ski mask and gloves -- an oddity and difficult items to obtain in a beach town.
  • The man was Caucasian, and Bunny Lehton is convinced he had an accent similar to what is heard in Maryland or Pennsylvania.
