In one of Atlanta, Georgia’s most popular public parks, a recent tragedy has now taken on a terrifying new angle, and it’s leaving some residents fearing that a crazed killer may still be on the loose.
It just just months ago that a woman, walking her dog near Piedmont Park just after midnight, was brutally stabbed to death along with her animal companion.
Now, as the murder remains unsolved, authorities are releasing new details in the case that include a bizarre message carved into the victim’s body.
The gruesome slaying of Katherine Janness on July 28 remains unsolved, her loved ones said.
Janness, 40, died from “sharp force injuries of her face, neck, and torso,” according to an autopsy report released by the Fulton County medical examiner.
The report said Janness was stabbed at least 15 times from her forehead to her chin, as well as dozens of other times throughout her body.
She also had wounds in the forms of the letters “FA” in the middle and the right side of her lower chest and her upper abdomen and a wound forming the letter “T” on the left side of her lower chest, the report said.
Police have routinely declined to suggest that they have a suspect in mind, or even a person of interest, leading many to believe that the killer could still be in the area and on the loose.
These new details, however, are sure to spark concerns that this is not a one-off event, and that the sadistic stabber may be preparing to strike again.
