Case 210

Jayna Murray

On March 11, 2011, two employees of the Lululemon Athletica yoga store in Bethesda, Maryland fell victim to a brutal attack carried out by two masked men. 30-year-old Jayna Murray was murdered, while 28-year-old Brittany Norwood survived the ordeal which included sexual assault, torture, repeated stabbings and burglary.  

Officials were desperate to apprehend the two suspects after CCTV from a neighboring store caught them walking away from the crime scene. However, it wasn’t until Brittany Norwood began to open up about what had happened on the night of the attack that detectives made an unexpected and shocking break in the case.
