No solid leads in 20 year old cold case
It has been more than 20 years since the death of Jackie McClelland and the cold case still baffles investigators with few clues to solve the case.
McClelland was 32 years old and a resident of Orange at the time of her death. Her lifeless body was discovered laying in the street near the corner of Second and Park Street. Officers from the Orange Police Department were called to the scene about 8:10 p.m. on February 4, 1992 after someone called to report a shooting in the area. She died at the scene.
An autopsy report would reveal she was shot with a gun in the upper chest. There were no other signs of assault.
Witnesses reported to police she was last seen getting into a gray or silver four- door car. There were two unknown white men inside the vehicle. She reportedly left with the two men in the vehicle and returned a while later. She is said to have gotten out of the vehicle, but continued to stand beside the car and talk to the men, according to Captain Cliff Hargrave, of OPD.
It is unknown what happened within the next few minutes. It is also unknown if the two men were involved in the murder or not. But, they were gone when police arrived. Investigators would like to talk to them to find out what they know about the incident.
The area in which she was shot was known for heavy drug trafficking, according to Hargrave.
Few leads have turned up in the case and definitely nothing solid which would lead to an arrest of a suspect.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Orange Police Department at 409-883-1026.
