Just months ago, the city of Atlanta was shocked by a gruesome murder in one of the city’s more affluent neighborhoods, and the gory details that have emerged this week are fueling speculation that a crazed killer may be on the loose.
The homicide had the city on edge from the start, with the original reporting including the fact that the woman’s dog was also slain.
But now it appears as though the killer left a calling card that was previously unrevealed.
A woman who was killed in July as she was walking her dog in Atlanta’s iconic Piedmont Park was stabbed dozens of times and had the letters “F” “A” and “T” carved on her chest, according to a medical examiner’s report.
The gruesome slaying of Katherine Janness on July 28 remains unsolved, her loved ones said.
Janness, 40, died from “sharp force injuries of her face, neck, and torso,” according to an autopsy report released by the Fulton County medical examiner.
The report said Janness was stabbed at least 15 times from her forehead to her chin, as well as dozens of other times throughout her body.
She also had wounds in the forms of the letters “FA” in the middle and the right side of her lower chest and her upper abdomen and a wound forming the letter “T” on the left side of her lower chest, the report said.
The horrid murder remains unsolved to this day, and no suspects have been publicly named in the case.
