This true crime story highlights the enduring love of a sister and her quest to find the killer who took her twin from her. In 1996, Jody LeCornu was just 23 when she ended up sitting in her car one early morning in a parking lot in the Baltimore Maryland area. Her murder was ruthless and devasting to her loved ones. Her twin, Jenny Carrieri, is relentless in her pursuit of the coward, who chose to murder Jody LeCornu for whatever little gain he received. There are pieces to this puzzle that could help solve this homicide, but not enough yet to bring the subject who committed this murder to justice.
Jennifer LeCornu Carrieri is organizing this fundraiser.
My identical twin, Jody, was murdered in Baltimore County on March 2, 1996—which was on my parents’ wedding anniversary. Her case has remained unsolved for nearly 25 years. I continue to try—in every way possible—to share her story. I have placed billboards in the Baltimore area to call attention to her case and I continue to do interviews via television, podcasts and print media. The billboards, I believe, play a crucial role in reaching people who may know something about who murdered my sister. They also share the tip line I established and the significant reward of $100,000.
