NORCROSS, Ga. — Police outside Atlanta are hoping a letter, written with cut-out letters from magazines, could help them finally get the break they need in a 2008 slaying that went cold.
Police released the letter and photos this week in hopes of generating leads in the killing of former model Eva Kay Wenal. She was stabbed in the neck, and her body was found in the kitchen of the Gwinnett County home she shared with her husband Harold “Hal” Wenal, a prominent real estate developer.
Gwinnett County police Det. John Richter tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that investigators believe the letter was written by the woman’s killer. It was mailed to the Journal-Constitution’s Norcross office in the months after Wenal was found dead, and the newspaper turned it over to police after receiving it.
