USA Today plans to run the ad Monday requesting information in the death of Jenna Nielsen. The 22-year-old was killed more than a week ago in Raleigh.
Nielsen worked as a paper carrier for USA Today to earn extra money. A Raleigh police officer found her body around 5 a.m. on June 14 behind a convenience store.
She was likely killed between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m. when the store was closed, investigators said. She apparently was stabbed in the neck, according to a preliminary report from the state medical examiner's office.
Nielsen was buried Saturday in Salt Lake City near where she lived before she and her husband, Tim, moved to Fuquay-Varina last August. The couple already had two young children before her death. She was also eight months pregnant.
