Police hope re-enactment will bring tips in slaying Authorities have few leads in killing of Glen Burnie teen-ager on Jan. 15

County police are hoping a $1,000 reward and a television tip line will lead them to the killer of a 14-year-old Glen Burnie girl.

On Monday between 5:20 p.m. and 5:40 p.m., Channel 2 and Metro Crime Stoppers is airing a re-enactment of the morning of Jan. 15, when Lisa Haenel was stabbed to death as she walked along a wooded path behind the Rainbow View apartment complex.

"I've never had much luck with those [re-enactments] before," said Sgt. Robert Jaschik, head of the homicide unit. "But the calls stopped coming in two weeks ago and we need a way to re-spark the calls."

Police recruits combed the woods for evidence and investigators questioned students and nearby residents, but those efforts were unsuccessful.

A $5,000 reward offered Feb. 2 by Lisa's father, Randy Haenel, has failed to generate tips.

The naked body of the Old Mill High School freshman was found about 9 a.m. Jan. 16 by her mother's boyfriend, Phillip Enke, 28, who was jogging nearby.

Police said Lisa, of the 300 block of Highland Drive, was last reported seen by her mother, Margaret Haenel, about 6 a.m. Friday.

She reported the girl missing at 7 o'clock that night, saying her daughter had not gone to school.

The time of death, according to police, was estimated at between 6:45 a.m. and 7:15 a.m. Jan. 15. The ravine where the girl's body was found is about 150 feet from a path students from the Glen Burnie neighborhood frequently use as a shortcut to nearby Old Mill High and two middle schools.

Lisa was on her way to school when she was attacked. Her clothing and book bag was found near the body, leading police to believe that she was killed in the ravine.

The re-enactment shows Lisa cutting through an apartment complex and walking down the path Sergeant Jaschik said. The picture fades out then and picks up again with Mr. Enke jogging and finding the body.

"That was really the only way we could do it because we don't know exactly what happened on that path," he said

In the re-enactment, Sergeant Jaschik's 14-year-old daughter, Kristy, portrays Lisa as she left her Southgate apartment and walked down Elvaton Road toward the wooded shortcut.

"It did feel strange to see my daughter doing this," he said. "But maybe it will teach her not to walk down strange paths."

Anyone with information about Lisa's death can call police at 222-3461 or Metro Crime Stoppers 24-hour hot line at 276-8888.
