Police asking for public’s help in murder of Hutchinson woman

June 22, 2011


— Police in Hutchinson are asking the public's help in solving last week's shooting death of a 27-year-old woman in her home.

Jennifer Heckel was home with her 5-year-old son in northwest Hutchinson when she was shot twice. It was the city's first homicide of the year.

Police Lt. Marty Robertson told The Hutchinson News that officers have questioned several people but have not identified a suspect or a motive. All nine of the department's detectives are involved in the investigation.

Police say Heckel's husband was out of town when the shooting occurred. They also say no sexual assault is suspected, and the death did not appear to be an accident.

Doors to the home were unlocked, and police say there's no sign that anything was stolen from the house.

Wow, thanks for the link. Much more interesting & informative. One commenter made a very good point that they need to look at recently fired/laid off employees, since she was in Human Resources at Kroger. Also, IMHO, the husband is always a good place to start. Being "out of town" is not always an airtight alibi.

This headline is a little misleading. Maybe they should insert the word solving or investigating into it.
