Vicious Attack On Woman Remains Unsolved In Grant County
OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: Grant County sheriff's detectives are asking the public for help solving a rural Quincy-area cold case from the summer of 2009.
On the morning of June 26, 2009, a woman living on County Road 11.5-NW said she heard a noise in her home. When she went to see what caused the noise, she interrupted a burglary. Startled, the lone suspect allegedly punched the woman, breaking her jaw. The suspect then fled the home, driving away in an older, silver-colored vehicle. That vehicle may have been a smaller SUV, minivan or small pickup with a canopy.
Investigators followed every possible lead back in 2009, and have continued to review the case file ever since. Unfortunately, the trail for the suspect has gone cold.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, around 25-years-old, 5'-7" tall, with a muscular build and thick, black, short-cut hair. The victim was able to assist detectives develop a computer-aided drawing of the suspect, which is attached to this news release.
The victim also described the suspect's vehicle as being in poor condition. It is important to think about the possibility the getaway vehicle may not be in running condition today, and may be a hulk vehicle parked someplace outside.
"We're asking citizens to look at the drawing of the suspect, and to consider anyone who fits the description who drove a similar vehicle back in 2009," said Sheriff Tom Jones. "If anyone thinks they know this guy, we want to know who he is."
Anyone with possible information should call the Sheriff's Office at 509-754-2011 ext. 468, or email a tip to email@example.com <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> . Tipsters can remain anonymous.
