Two years have passed Melissa Millan, a 54-year-old mother and insurance company executive, was stabbed and killed while jogging on Iron Horse Boulevard on Nov. 20, 2014 and the case remains unsolved.
Someone found Millan in the road around 8 p.m. on Nov. 20, 2014 and she was rushed to Saint Francis Hospital, where she died a short time later, according to police.
Police initially thought she might have been killed in a hit-and-run, but the medical examiner determined that she died of a stab wound to the chest.
She had been jogging somewhere between Phelps Lane and Pent Road when she was stabbed on the busy street that includes a heavily used bike trail, several restaurants and the Performing Arts Center at Simsbury Meadows.
In June 2015, a $40,000 reward was offered for tips that led to an arrest and conviction, but there has been no arrest.
Two years after the slaying, a memorial with a photo, a pumpkin, mementoes and more marks the site where Millan was stabbed.
Bob Knight, who knew Millan and her parents, said last year he believes Millan's death might be tied to her work as an investigator for the insurance company.
But police have not nothing to indicate Millan's job had anything to do with her death.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has also been involved in looking into the case.
