One Year After Haile Plantation Jogger Rape
It has almost been a year since the jogger was attacked in Haile Plantation.
Many residents refuse to jog alone anymore.
"It did effect me and most other people I know that jog. I won't jog alone anymore and I don't want to jog when it's dark so I think it has had an impact on all of us,” said Cynthia Thibault, owner of The Village Jeweler in Haile Plantation.
Officials involved in the case say that they still get two leads a week regarding last years assault.
"We do have some forensic evidence in this case. We believe that evidence will be able to assist us in identifying the suspect. In an effort not to educate or change the person's m.o. We'd rather not release how or what was gathered,” said Lt. Jack Jacobs.
Authorities have also entered the case into a national database and are looking for similar crimes around the country that could be related and they are still confident.
One year later, law enforcement is still investigating and joggers are still jogging but they haven't forgotten.
