Volunteers shift focus to find Reno woman's killer

RENO, Nev. – Somber but determined volunteers Monday assembled small bundles of blue ribbons in memory of a young Reno woman while they made up new signs to be spread around the community seeking help in finding the serial rapist who killed her.

Blue was Brianna Denison's favorite color. Operating from a large fifth-floor office at Saint Mary's Regional Medical Center, about a dozen volunteers tied ribbons and heaped them on a table – making them available to anyone who stopped by.

At another table, workers made signs that read, “Bring Bri Justice.”

“Today's a day to get reorganized,” said Claudette Springmeyer, a spokeswoman for the small army of volunteers that has numbered close to 1,500 in the days and weeks since Jan. 20, when Denison, 19, was kidnapped while sleeping on a couch at a friend's rented home near the University of Nevada, Reno


Family members said a public memorial service likely would be held later this week, though a definite date and time has not been set.

Based on the previous sexual assaults, police described the suspect as a white man, 28 to 40 years old, with a long face and square jaw. He is 5-foot-6 to 6-feet tall, of slight or medium build, with brown hair. Authorities said his pubic region was shaved.

His vehicle was described as a high, extended cab pickup or SUV with an exterior step up into the cab. The vehicle also had an interior dome light above the windshield, cloth seats, a narrow floor-mounted console, and a radio with a blue and red LED read-out.
