At any given time in the world, there are thousands of unsolved murders. Most of them will never be solved. The first 48 hours of a homicide are the most crucial to an investigation. Eventually, leads dry up, witnesses become less cooperative, and cases go cold (unsolved). Meanwhile, detectives continue receiving new homicide cases which push older ones to the back. After a case goes cold, it quickly becomes yesterday’s news. The public and the media will forget about the crime and move onto the next crime story.

But do you know who won’t forget about a cold case? The victim’s family and friends. They won’t forget because their case is more than a case file or news story. The victims were sons, fathers, mothers, daughters, or friends. Catch my Killer is a podcast that focuses on the victim's surviving family and friends. If you are listening and can help bring a killer to justice, please call in your tips. Even the smallest clue could be large enough to break a case wide open.

    Episode 15: The shooting death of Jody LeCornu

    For this episode I spoke to Jenny Carrieri whose twin sister Jody LeCornu was murdered in Baltimore, Maryland. The LeCornu sisters were best friends and did everything together. Although Jenny moved away from Maryland, the sisters kept in touch by phone. Unfortunately, the happiness of the LeCornu sisters ended with a single bullet on a cold winter evening in 1996. Although one sister died, the other one suffers from a wound that will never heal. It’s called a broken heart.

    On March 2, 1996, Sometime before 4 a.m., Jody pulled into a shopping center parking lot. After parking her car, a stocky black man wearing an Army fatigue jacket pulled up to Jody in a white BMW. Witnesses saw a brief exchange between the unidentified man and LeCornu. He then fired one shot through the back of Jody’s car. The bullet struck her in the back and traveled into her spine. With her life fading into darkness, Jody drove away into another parking lot where she died.

    If you have any information about this cold case, please contact the Jody LeCornu tip line at (410)-200-6284 or visit the website titled: www.justice4jody.com

    Episode 11: The mysterious death of Tanner Barton

    On April 22, 2012, Tanner Barton was found dead at a friend's house. Originally, it was thought he died from a medical issue. Michelle Barton, Tanner's mother, began looking into her son's death and has many unanswered questions. For instance, after reviewing pictures of the death scene, Tanner's shoes were missing. And then there was the question of the toxicology reports. Three of them were completed and all three had different results. How was this possible?

    Michelle believes that her son was given something that contributed to his death. She also has issues with the family’s story about how Tanner died in their home. The family claimed that their teenage daughter found Tanner's body, checked his pulse and then left him on the floor. Allegedly, she didn't tell her parents or call 911.

    MIchelle has spoken to law enforcement, her county's coroner without any luck in getting help. She has also appeared on Nancy Grace and Dr. Oz for help. She still has no answers to how her son died. She has hopes that someone will listen to her and have the courage to step up and provide a useful tip that will finally reveal the truth about what really happened to her son Tanner. If you know anything about this case, please contact Michelle directly with tips. She can be reached through either of her Facebook pages: In Memory of Tanner Barton or Tanner’s Voice.

    Episode 10: The poisoning death of private investigator Jim Cappello

    Episode 10: The poisoning death of private investigator Jim Cappello

    In 2018, a private investigator named Jim Cappello had called his sister. He said he wasn't feeling well. Jamie Weast was Jim's older sister. Her instincts as a nurse told her that this could be serious. She spoke to Jim's wife Nicole about the matter. Nicole Cappello was also a nurse. She told Jamie not to worry. She would look after Jim. Within days, Jim would be found dead and his wife Nicole would be arrested and charged with killing Jim by poisoning him.

    For this episode, I spoke to Jamie about her brother. She told me he was a successful private investigator in Huntsville, Alabama and was a great father to his young daughter. Jamie and her family are preparing for Nicole's upcoming trial in January 2020. Although Nicole hasn't been convicted, the Cappello family believe she is responsible for Jim's death.

    Jamie could only share certain details about the case because of the pending trial, but she will provide a follow up after the trial ends.
