Police Ask Public For Help In Solving Clark, N.J. Murder 2 Years Later

CLARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) -- Investigators Wednesday were asking the public for help in the murder of a Clark, New Jersey woman, whose body was found in her home two years ago.

The Union County Prosecutor's office requested information in the death of Vera Pecoraro, who was found stabbed to death in her home on her 74th birthday.

Pecoraro's body was found by one of her sons, Anthony. Police said there were no signs of forced entry, and they believe she was targeted.

"We did not find that the house was in any way ransacked either, so that and some other evidence near the body led us to suspect it might have been a suicide," Prosecutor Ted Romankow said at the time.

Further investigation, however, revealed the woman was murdered, 1010 WINS' Sonia Rincon reported at the time.

Prosecutors are urging members of the public to come forward with any information or try to remember anything unusual they may have witnessed.

An anonymous donor has offered a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.
