Atlanta police investigators are “getting closer” to making an arrest in the unsolved Piedmont Park stabbing case.

Police have been “working diligently” to solve the brutal murder of Katherine Janness and her dog Bowie who were found savagely stabbed inside the park in July.

The medical examiner’s report stated Janness was stabbed 50 times and the word “FAT” was carved into her torso.

She died from “sharp force injuries of her face, neck, and torso that” ruptured internal blood vessels. Police say the killer spent time with her body.

In a press conference on Tuesday, Jan. 4, Atlanta police assured the public they are working diligently and “getting closer” to arresting Janness’s killer.

According to CBS46, investigators are “combing through physical and electronic evidence that could help crack the case.”

Atlanta police are renewing calls for possible witnesses who were in the park that night.

The press conference was welcome news to Atlantans who are afraid to jog in Piedmont Park after dark until the killer is in custody.

The APD stressed that Janness’ murder case has not gone cold.
