Jenna Nielsen, 22, was delivering USA Today newspapers on June 14 when she was attacked and stabbed to death. Her body was found behind a convenience store on Lake Wheeler Road in Raleigh. She was eight months pregnant at the time of her death.
Police have said there is no indication that anyone close to Nielsen is a suspect in the case and that they are still investigating it as a stranger homicide. Homicide victims' communications, however, are often examined to see if there is any evidence that could lead them to a suspect.
The family is offering up to $15,000 for information that leads to a conviction in the case.
