IRINA YARMOLENKO: POLICE RELEASE CLUE IN SEARCH FOR KILLER

Police release one new detail in slaying
Irina Yarmolenko went to a Goodwill store on day her body was found
Staff Reports / Posted on Thu, May. 15, 2008

In the two-hour period before her body was found on May 5, Irina Yarmolenko made a stop at a Goodwill store.

The detail -- released Wednesday by police -- is an additional piece in the puzzle of Yarmolenko's killing.

The 20-year-old UNC Charlotte student was found in the Water's Edge community, near the Stowe Family YMCA in Mount Holly, authorities said. Police said she died from asphyxiation, but wouldn't say whether she was strangled or smothered.

Police haven't released a suspect's name or a motive, but Mount Holly Police Chief David Belk said both front doors of Yarmolenko's blue Saturn sedan were open when her body was spotted by a woman riding a personal watercraft.

I hope this case is not going to be one of those unsolve mystery. Her killer needs to be punished.

I posted a blog about this http://aholeinthemiddle.blogspot.com/2008/05/who-killed-irina-yarmolenko.html

I know that she's Ukranian descent and I hate to speculate about this, but do you think cops are looking into maybe Mafia related? ..

You can find more information and if you want, post information at this blog:

For some reason, the Chapel Hill press and even the local blogs (other than the one listed) have totally ignored this murder. It's getting stranger, since someone actually dug up the flowers on Ira's grave. This just doesn't "happen", she must have been targeted for this further indignity.
