Atlanta police held a private chat with a few select journalists to update them on the Piedmont Park murder case on Thursday.

According to CBS46 reporter Hayley Mason, Atlanta police dropped hints that someone close to Katherine Janness may be her killer.

"Atlanta Police Chief Rodney Bryant tells me no one has been ruled out as a suspect in the Piedmont Park murder case. He says the case is still wide open and active. The department has faced challenges accessing video from park cameras and is still working to recover images."

More details have emerged since the 40-year-old bartender was brutally stabbed while walking her dog, Bowie, in Piedmont Park on July 28.

Police confirmed rumors that a slur was carved into Janness' body and her head was nearly severed during the attack.

Audio of the 911 call placed by Janness' partner, Emma Clark, cast suspicion on her.

Twitter users noted how "calm" Clark sounded during the phone call.

Clark told a bystander, "Did you just see that? That's my f***ing girlfriend."

A GoFundMe account raised more than $70,000 for Clark who has since left Atlanta.

PETA offered $10,000 for information leading to the killer(s), in addition to the $10,000 already offered by the Atlanta Police Department.

The Atlanta City Council approved new cameras in parks following the murder. The investigation is hampered by the lack of functioning cameras in the park that night.
