ATLANTA (AP) — A woman who was walking her dog in one of Atlanta's most popular parks has been stabbed to death, authorities said.
Katherine Janness, 40, was found inside Piedmont Park around 1 a.m. Wednesday, news outlets reported. Police say her dog was also killed.
Authorities are searching for a suspect.
Atlanta police Deputy Chief Charles Hampton described the scene as “gruesome.”
Police were working to retrace the victim’s steps, Hampton told WSB-TV early Wednesday.
Hampton said it’s too early to determine a motive for the killing in the city’s Midtown neighborhood.
Investigators are offering a $10,000 reward for information regarding the slaying.
