35G bounty on killer who strangled jogger in Pennypack

Posted: August 08, 2014

WITH LITTLE to go on three days after a Northeast Philadelphia woman was found strangled in Pennypack Park, police last night announced an increased reward for information leading to her killer.

In addition to the city's standing $20,000 reward for a tip leading to an arrest and conviction in any homicide, Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 5 kicked in $10,000, and Philadelphia Federal Credit Union added $5,000 for information in the case, bringing the total reward to $35,000.

The victim, Constance "Connie" Murray, 46, a wife and mother of two young daughters, left her home about 9 p.m. Monday to go for a jog and never returned. A woman walking her dog found Murray's body in the woods off Holme Avenue near Convent about 6 a.m. Tuesday.

Police said that an autopsy revealed that Murray had been strangled in the spot where she was found, but that clues into who killed her have been scant.

Tipsters should call the Homicide Unit at 215-686-3334 or the police tip line, 215-686-8477, text PPDTIP (773847) or email tips@phillypolice.com.
