assault-still-shot-nj-suspectHUFFINGTONPOST — Police in New Jersey are using nanny cam footage to track down a robbery suspect who punched and choked a suburban mom while her terrified 3-year-old daughter watched.

At 10:30 a.m. Friday, the suspect kicked down the locked door of a Millburn, N.J., house and assaulted an unsuspecting homeowner.

“I knew that if I started screaming, my daughter would too, and I was afraid she would get hurt,” the victim told News12 N.J. “I took it. I didn’t cry the entire time.”

The suspect made off with an unspecified amount of jewelry, including the woman’s wedding ring, according to WABC. The woman’s 1-year-old daughter was upstairs during the incident. Neither child was harmed.

“The man viciously beat the woman,” Capt. Michael Palardy told Millburn Patch.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital where she was treated for injuries to her face and legs, according to The Star-Ledger.

jennifer-odomVICTIM: Jennifer Renee Odom
White Female, Born 8/25/1980

On Friday, February 19, 1993, Jennifer stepped off her school bus around 3 p.m., waved goodbye to friends, and started walking the short 200 yards to her home in rural Pasco County, FL. Children on the bus reported they saw a faded blue pickup truck slowly following Jennifer as she walked home. Jennifer never made it to her door.

During the next days, law enforcement equipped with police dogs and hundreds of volunteers scoured 60 square miles of rolling groves, pastures and woods surrounding the tiny Pasco town of Dade City.

On Thursday, February 25, 1993, a man and woman searching an abandoned orange grove in southeast Hernando County, FL, found Jennifer. Jennifer’s clothing, including the red sweater and Hooter’s jacket, have not been found.

Approximately two years later on Thursday, January 5, 1995, a couple hunting for scrap metal in a rural area of Hernando County discovered Jennifer’s missing book bag and clarinet case. The bag and case were found in Western Hernando County.

The suspect vehicle is a full size, older unknown model pick-up truck, blue in color.

Jennifer was last seen wearing a white zip-up “Hooters” sweat jacket with orange lettering on the left sleeve, a red long sleeve pullover sweater, possible cashmere or angora, a white turtleneck shirt, white denim pants and black lace-up style boots.

For those who aren’t familiar with the case, Morgan Dana Harrington was a 20-year-old Virginia Tech student whose disappearance on October 17, 2009  initiated one of the largest searches in Charlottesville, Virginia’s history.

12/28/12 QUEENS, NYC — NYPD Searching For Unidentified Woman Accused Of Killing Man By Pushing Him Onto The Subway Tracks

Scene outside NYC subway station where man was pushed to his death onto tracks in front of oncoming train on night of Dec. 27, 2012, according to police, in the city's second such incident this month.

Outside NYC subway station where man was pushed to his death onto tracks in front of oncoming train Yesterday night (link to surveillance video showing the unidentified woman can be found at the end of this post)

NYPD are searching for the unidentified woman who they said fled a train station immediately after pushing an unsuspecting man to his death at a Subway Train Station in New York City.

The man, who has not been identified, was standing on the elevated platform of a 7 train in Queens Boulevard in the Sunnyside neighborhood at approximately 8pm last night (12/27/12) when an unidentified woman shoved him onto the tracks.

According to witnesses, the woman was supposedly following the man while mumbling to herself and although her mumbling drew attention, it appears the victim had not noticed he was being followed. According to police, the woman was sitting on a bench and when the train pulled in, she got up and shoved the man down. The man had apparently been standing with his back to her and the woman pushed him at the last possible second, giving the man no time to defend or save himself.

The victim was hit by the first car of an 11-car northbound train and got stuck under the wheels of the second. He was pronounced dead at the scene and according to NYPD, he had sustained ‘terrible injuries that make providing a description difficult at this time.’

I heard the train screech as it was stopping and then heard this loud scream,‘ Linda Santini-Tripodis, who was under the 40th Street station at the time, told The Sunnyside Post. ‘I’m never going to forget that scream for as long as I live.’

Crime scene: The shocking incident occurred at a station in Queens, pictured, and is the second horrific case this month

This isn’t December’s first NYC Subway murder. Earlier this month, a very similar attack happened which involved a man being pushed his death on the subway tracks in NYC.

On December 3, 2012, 58-year-old Ki-Suck Han was pushed to his death in Time Square by Naeem Davis, a thirty year old homeless man who was also described by witnesses as ‘mumbling to himself’ shortly before pushing Han in front of a train. Davis was soon arrested after being identified on surveillance tape. He has been charged with first degree murder.

Kisuck Han Funeral

A photograph of Han on the tracks a split second before he was killed was published on the front of the New York Post the following day, which caused outrage and debate over whether the photographer, who had also been waiting for a train, should have tried to help him and whether the newspaper should have run the image. Apparently no one else tried to help up Han, either.

Police viewed footage from a 24-hour surveillance camera outside a pizza restaurant located across from the station and were able to obtain clear images of the suspect, according to The New York Times.

‘She jumps from the stairs and she just runs,’ said Oasis Restaurant owner, Giovanni Briones.

Briones went on to say that he did not recognize the woman but that a restaurant regular was on the train and felt a bump as it ran over the man.

Police have very little to go on and are hoping the public will help in identifying the suspect who is described as being 5’5” tall, heavy-set Hispanic female, in her twenties wearing a blue, white and gray jacket and Nike sneakers with gray on top and red on the bottom.
