A massive increase in the reward for information leading to the arrest of the person who murdered Towson University student Jody LeCornu.

Back in 1996, LeCornu was shot in the back while in her car at the Drumcastle Shopping Center on York Road. She then managed to drive across the street but didn't get far. 

Detectives know whoever shot Jody followed her and took something her car before driving off. They have witnesses, surveillance videos, fingerprints, even a description of the shooter and the car -- still not enough to put anyone in jail. 

WMAR-2 News spoke with Jody's twin sister in October when she originally posted a billboard on York Road offering a reward for information.
