Ferguson Township Police need help solving a three year old cold case. They’re asking anyone who knew Jean Tuggy, or live in the village where she lived and died to contact them. 

Tuggy was killed January 20th, 2016. She was found inside her home January 21st with a gunshot sound to the face. 

For the first time in the Ferguson Township Police Department’s history, police have dedicated a cold case team to investigate three unsolved cases, including the homicide of Tuggy, a 60-year-old resident of Pine Grove Mills, and the disappearances of Jennifer Cahill Shadle and Cindy Song. Detectives Caleb Clouse and Joshua Martin started looking at the cases three months ago. 

In the Tuggy case alone, they have read more than 700 pages of reports, not including photos, attachments, and cell phone records. “We’re getting up to speed on the case, looking at it with fresh eyes, and asking questions,” said Clouse. He and Martin are conducting interviews with anyone that knew Tuggy or may have information about her. 

“Any knowledge about the victim in this case and any information could be helpful,” Clouse said. “We’re asking the public not to assume that we have all of the information we need.” 

They want any resident who has a hunch to share it with the police. In Tuggy’s case, police are interested in talking to Pine Grove Mills residents who may have information, but have yet to be interviewed about the case.
