A decade after a mother and daughter were found dead outside of a South Florida mall, police are still trying to piece together the murder mystery and they are hoping the public's renewed interest may help them find new leads.
On December 12, 2007, 47-year-old Nancy Bochicchio and her seven-year-old daughter Joey were killed outside the Town Center Mall in Boca Raton. Police say they were abducted and taken to an ATM to withdraw money, where they were then bound and shot to death before a security guard found their bodies.
Investigators say Nancy’s phone and credit cards were found in Miami within hours of the carjacking. The zip ties and duct tape used to bind the duo were also bought there, police said.
Boca Raton Police posted a video to Facebook recently on the case, as lead investigators spoke about their hopes to solve a case that hits home for those in the department with families. Police said the murder is related to a case months before where a woman was carjacked and bound, but not killed.
After chasing more than 2,000 leads, police said they still haven't achieved their goal.
"To bring this guy to justice, because he didn't just steal money, he stole all those events and all those memories from the family and from Joey," Police Capt. Matthew Duggan said. "Joey's picture is up in my office with my kids and it'll stay there until we solve this."
Authorities are offering a $400,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the killer.
"You know if you have a piece of evidence or you have something you remember about this person, it may link us to this suspect," FBI Special Agent John McVeigh said.
