EXCLUSIVE: New information in murder of Henrico woman

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

New information in the cold case murder of a Henrico County mother and nurse. It's been more than a year since 56-year-old Bonnie Marrow was shot and killed while driving through Richmond's east end.  

Detectives believe new images of Bonnie Marrow shortly before her death could bring key evidence to the investigation.  

Detective Michael Gouldman has spent 13 months trying to catch her killer. Shortly before Christmas in 2011, Marrow was driving to work at VCU Medical Center.  

She made a couple stops along the way. Those stops could help crack the case. A new photo shows Marrow buying food inside the Wawa near the airport before 6:30 a.m. Police believe her next stop was a few miles west to visit her son's grave. Ironically, 22-year-old Robert Cox Jr. was also murdered in his car in 2010.  

"There is no indication of connection between the two cases," said Detective Michael Gouldman with the Richmond Police Homicide Unit.  

Police are looking at these images to figure out what exactly happened between the time she visited her son's grave off Nine Mile road and the area where she was found shot in her car on 25th Street near the police precinct - less than one mile apart.   

A surveillance image shows Marrow driving her black Acura through the light where Nine Mile Road turns into 25th Street. 

"We're hopeful that somebody traveling that route might have seen something odd or suspicious or anything that could help us out," said Detective Gouldman. "My biggest frustration is not knowing what exactly the motive is and exactly how it occurred." 

Police say Marrow could have been a target of attempted robbery or car- jacking. Several witnesses report hearing gun shots that morning - but police still need more evidence to turn this cold case into a closed case.  

If you have any information that could help lead police to an arrest - call Crime Stoppers at 780-1000.
