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.

A letter sent to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution might hold clues to a cold case.

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.

Good Luck

Sad that her husband went to his grave never knowing who murdered his wife. I really hope it will be solved someday.
