Authorities in Nebraska have spent over 15 years trying to identify the killer of Leah Rowlands. AMW aired the case three times from 1997 to 2002.
On Mar 10, 1997, Leah Rowlands was working at a gas station in Cozad, Nebraska, just off Interstate 80. Just before 10:30 AM, an unidentified white male in his 20s to 30s entered the gas station and got a bottle of pop. He then ordered Leah to empty the cash register, after that he leaned over the counter and shot her three times with a 9mm pistol, killing her. The killer got $150 in cash, a full tank of gas, the bottle of pop, a pack of cigarettes and a lighter. Surveillance tapes identified the killer's vehicle as a 1992-1995 model Pontiac Grand Am with very shiny chrome wheels, but couldn't clearly reveal the license plate. He was also wearing a dark leather jacket, dark hooded sweatshirt, dark sweatpants and was barefoot at the time of the murder.
Thoughts? Judging by the killer's appearance, I suspect he was a transient who was travelling on Interstate 80 in the direction of either Omaha, Wyoming or Colorado. If that's true, then I'm not optimistic he'll be identified unless he confesses to someone.
