Halloween Night Horror Show
The last time Carlos Amaya saw his sister Nori alive, they ate dinner at Coppi's Organic, the restaurant they owned together in Washington, D.C.
But the last time he saw his sister was an experience no family member wants to endure.
After dinner Halloween night 2009, Carlos stayed behind to manage the restaurant. The two had owned Coppi's Organic since 2003, and this was his year to manage their green-minded eatery.
Cops tell AMW Nori was seen by friends at several places that evening: An avid salsa dancer, she partied the night away until returning home at 2:30 a.m. Nov. 1. Surveillance video shows Nori stepping out of her cab alone.
On Sunday, Carlos expected Nori to arrive at work at 2 p.m. to prepare a feast for 40 people the following day. But then, he received a phone call from the taxi driver who ferried Nori home that night. Nori left the phone in the cab, a common occurrence for Nori. Carlos retrieved the phone, then arrived at the restaurant at 5.
Still, there was no sign of Nori.
Carlos went to her apartment later that evening, where security let her into her one-bedroom on a busy street in D.C.
There, Carlos' worst fears were realized, as he discovered Nori's lifeless body underneath the comforter on her bed.
Cops say there were ligature marks on her neck, indicating she was strangled to death.
And in a bizarre twist, all of Nori's fingernails were removed. Cops speculate this may have been because Nori fought her attacker, and her nails may have scraped off enough skin to get a DNA sample.
Now much time has passed, but cops are still without a suspect. But there's still one loose end to the investigation that needs tying up.
On the night she was murdered, Nori took a cab home, and left her cell phone inside it. The driver eventually got in touch with Carlos, who met the driver to retrieve the phone. But Carlos never got his name. Cops need to speak with him, as he may have valuable information about Nori from that evening.
Check out the surveillance video that shows the cab dropping Nori off at her apartment building. And if you know the cab company or the driver's name, call us right now at 1-800-CRIME-TV or leave your tip on the web.
Thoughts? Nori Amaya's murder was profiled on the April 2nd, 2011 episode of America's Most Wanted. Unfortunately, according to the official Metropolitan Police Department unsolved homicides listings, Nori's case is still unsolved. Just a side note that obviously 1-800-CRIME-TV will obviously not work anymore since AMW was cancelled but I will provide a link in the admin notes for those with information. Unlike other cases thankfully there's actually the original AMW segment available online and the aforementioned surveillance video can be seen in that Vimeo link. So please watch the segment whether it's your first time or even second time and you're from the DC area. Hopefully something jogs someone's memory.
