Cold Case File: Julie Cohen
Some people have an early calling in life.. and they know what path to take to get them there. In 1977 that path led a 22-year-old woman to the University of Florida. She was about to become admitted to UF in the Forestry Department's graduate studies program. A star was born the moment she stepped on campus. This cold case file showcases this star as her memory guides cold case detectives in their search for a killer. Time stands still as Julie Cohen's family waits to learn who killed her. She dies in the place she loved the most.. in a plot of evergreens that were under her care in the Austin Cary memorial forest. When Julie failed to show up at a school function one evening, classmates became worried. They began a search for her. In a grassy area between her trees, Julie was found. She had been strangled with her bra. Cold Case Detectives don't believe her death was motivated by robbery or theft and say it appears to have been a personal or sexually motivated murder. And like so many other areas of her life.. Julie didn't give up willingly. In a struggle to find answers, detectives were unable to find any clues.
Now, University of Florida Police believe they may finally get the break in her case due to the new technology called touch DNA. Touch DNA uses microscopic skin cells left behind when you touch an object. UPD plans to submit Julie's bra to a special lab for testing.
Julie's death remains one of the only two homicide cases at UF. If you have any information about who killed Julie Cohen you are asked to contact University of Florida police at 352-392-1111.
