It's been over three years since 25-year-old Nori Jones was brutally murdered inside her Pocatello home, but on Thursday police released some new developments in the unsolved case. Nisha Gutierrez reports.
The Pocatello Police Department held a news conference Thursday to let the public know they have received a report from the FBI that will hopefully lead to a break in the case.
The murder of Nori Jones has gone cold since she was killed on September 28th 2004. But on Thursday, police said a new report is helping make sure investigators are on the right track.
Captain Steve Findley: "We look at it as an investigative roadmap that will take us to where the suspect lives - his neighborhood, but not right into his driveway."
Listed in the FBI's report is a summary of the case and a victimology report which gives detectives an idea of what happened to Nori prior to her murder.
But Findley says the most important piece of information is the section compiled by criminal profilers that lists offender characteristics which will hopefully let detectives know what kind of person the suspect is.
Captain Steve Findley: "Most of the information we'll keep pretty close to our chest but there may be a time when we let that information out."
Nori Jones' body was found inside her Pocatello home by her co-workers who grew suspicious that morning when she failed to show up to work.
Today, Findley told members of the media the new information follows the department's decision to review all of its cold cases.
Captain Steve Findley: "This particular one is our most recent one that we're very interested in clearing - as we are with all of them - but this is the one we could submit to the FBI and get a real critical analysis on with fairly timely information."
And says he believes information from the public will lead to a break in the case.
Captain Steve Findley: "The community helping us out, the media stepping in as a part of the community and I truly believe we'll reach a resolution."
Although Findley would not comment on if the department has a definitive suspect he did say they are looking into some people and will work very closely with the FBI until this cold case is solved.
