From The Connecticut government website- Cold Cases section:
Rhonda Johnson and her six-month-old son, Corán, were found fatally shot in her blue Toyota Camry on Thursday, September 12, 1996, on Grenhart Road between Victory Street and Diaz Street in Stamford.
Eighteen-year-old Rhonda had picked up her son from his babysitter’s home on Oaklawn Avenue in Stamford around 3:30 p.m. and was scheduled to start a shift at 4 p.m. at Stamford Hospital where she worked as a dietary aide.
Johnson’s family grew worried when they learned she had not showed up for work and had not contacted anyone to explain why. A passerby on Grenhart Road observed Rhonda slumped over the steering wheel of her car and notified emergency services shortly before 8 p.m.
Both Rhonda and Corán were killed by gunshot wounds to the head. Rhonda, a part-time college student, was a graduate of Westhill High School in Stamford.
The case is being investigated by the Stamford Police Department and the Cold Case Unit in the Office of the Chief State’s Attorney.

Thoughts? This is a very tragic case and I'm surprised has received little publicity for over two decades. I hate to say it but I would have to wonder if this would be the case if it were a white mother and her six-month-old son.
