Emotional Scene For Bethesda Murder Victim


BETHESDA, Md. (WUSA) -- It was an emotional scene Tuesday afternoon in Bethesda when the family of murder victim Jayna Murray came to the Lululemon Athletica store, where she was found dead over the weekend.

Murray's father was visibly broken apart and needed to be consoled by other family and friends.

The heart-wrenching scene was the first time the family got to see the scene of the crime.

Police are not saying much about the investigation. They did say they are looking into possible DNA evidence of the crime.

Police are looking for two men -- one 5'3" tall and the other 6' tall -- who are believed to have slipped into the Lululemon Athletica store right behind the two victims, both store employees.

At a Monday afternoon news conference, police released some critical new details. Police said both women were sexually assaulted, cash was taken from the store, and investigators were able to gather a lot of forensic evidence from what has been described as a gruesome crime scene.

The reward to find Murray's murderers is more than $130,000.
