Jody LeCornu

Last Seen:March 02, 1996
Discovered:March 02, 1996
Age at the Time:23
Jody was a student at Towson University and is described by many as kind and generous. Her twin sister, Jenny, says, “growing up, it was like having your best friend around all the time. “ She had a very distinct fear that was sadly foreboding: she feared that something would happen to her in Baltimore, specifically that she would be shot.

Jody LeCornu had a short interaction with a man in a parking lot well after 3 a.m. He then shot her through the back window of her car.

Witnesses saw her have a brief encounter with a man in a parking lot before he returned to his car. He shot her with a .38 caliber handgun, severing her spine, then followed her across the parking lot and waited for her to die. He is then said to have retrieved something from her car before casually leaving the scene.
