Police Release Clue In Mall Killings
Updated On: Jan 26 2010 07:53:19 AM EST
Detectives made a move Monday night to solve a homicide mystery that is now more than two years old ? the killings of a mother and her 7-year-old daughter at a shopping mall.
In December 2007, Nancy Bochicchio and her 7-year-old daughter, Joey, were killed after a day of Christmas shopping at the Boca Town Center Mall.
Investigators said they have examined almost 2,000 leads hope someone can identify this latest piece of evidence -- a pair of swim goggles the killer used to cover the eyes of his victims. They have yellow plastic frames, foam edging on the inside, a hinged bridge across the nose and removable lenses that are black.
?I still shop at Boca Town Center but I?m still nervous and I valet park when I go there," shopper Suzette Bocchino told Local 10's Julie Summers.
According to Officer Sandra Boonenberg of the Boca Raton Police Department, it's rare that police reveal this type of evidence.
?It?s very unusual. There are so many reasons why you don?t normally do something like this but we have exhausted all the resources in trying to track down the manufacturer of these glasses. That?s why we?re looking for the public?s help," she said.
Police are hoping someone will know the company that makes the goggles or where they are sold.
The reward for capture of the killer now stands at $350,000.
