On Monday, March 9, 1992, the nude body of Amy Hooper was found face up on the floor of her Lincoln Village apartment in Columbus, Ohio in western Franklin County. Her hands had been loosely bound, she was bludgeoned and stabbed to death. Amy worked at Bermans Leather in the Westland Mall in Columbus. She did not report for work the day her body was discovered. Her family went to her apartment to check on her and she was found dead in her apartment. Investigators believe that Amy knew her attacker(s) and that she could have let the person in. There were no signs of forced entry to her apartment, there was also no indication of a struggle. Investigators are attempting to locate anyone who had contact with Amy before her death or who may have information regarding her murder.
