Tina Leone

A passing motorist spotted Tina Leone's body on Sept. 14, 2003, just after 7 a.m about 20 feet into the woods on Stepney Road in Aberdeen, 30 miles northeast of Baltimore. According to police, Tina was killed by blunt trauma to the face and stab wounds to the neck. Her murder was a cold case for 16 months, before she was identified.

Tina was 5-feet-4, 110 pounds, with a petite build and brown hair. She had several tattoos, which include a tiger, a Playboy bunny, an eagle, a parrot, a rose, a half heart, and a butterfly. She also had a scar on her abdomen. She was known to frequent Lynn establishments such as the Arena Café, the Venice Café, and the House of Roast Beef. Before moving to Marion Street, she lived in apartments on Washington Street and Park Street.

Maryland-area director at the Doe Network, theorized in a published report by the Baltimore Sun newspaper that "Leone may have been traveling with a carnival or living a drifter lifestyle, on the fringes of the law." According to Johnson, the victim was wearing a dolphin ring, a common trinket among carnival workers.
