Baltimore County police on Wednesday asked for the public's help in a 15-year-old unsolved murder case.

On March 2, 1996, Joann "Jody" LeCornu, 23, of Cedarcroft, was shot in the back from the rear of her car in the Drumcastle Shopping Center on York Road in the Towson area.

She then drove across York Road to the York Road Plaza, which is now the Giant York Road Plaza.

She was found dead there in her white Honda Civic by police after workers at the Giant food store called police at 3:41 a.m. to report the sound of gunshots, police told The Sun at the time.

Police said a man in a white BMW had followed LeCornu into the plaza parking lot and taken unknown items from her car before leaving.

A cash Metro Crime Stoppers reward for information in her case has grown to more than $30,000.

Police ask anyone with information call them at 410-307-2020, or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7-LOCKUP.
