LELAND, NC (WECT) - It was a murder so horrific, veteran police officers were shaken up. And 32 years later, the question of who killed Jaye Potter-Mintz remains unanswered.
Detectives say on Feb. 23, 1987, someone raped Potter-Mintz, slashed her throat and stabbed her repeatedly.
Her then two-year-old son witnessed it all. Fortunately, he wasn’t hurt.
WECT has reached out to the the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office for an update on the case.
Other than we are still actively working the case and following up on leads, there is nothing more that we can share," a sheriff’s office spokesperson wrote. “Still an active and ongoing investigation. We are still working to bring justice for Jaye and closure for her family.”
