Seventy four year old widow, Evelyn Slay, was robbed, stabbed and killed by someone that broke into her home on June 1, 1983 in Jacksonville, Florida.

Twice that day Evelyn had called the Jacksonville Sheriff”s Office to report missing money from her home.

Evelyn suspected a woman that had been hired to clean her home through the Florida State Employment Agency was the thief. Within four hours of filing the police report, Evelyn Slay was stabbed to death in her Huron Street home.

It takes a special kind of monster to rob and murder a 74 year old widow in her own home. A kind of monster that will kill again if not brought to justice.

Please help Evelyn’s family get the answers they have sought for over 32 years.

If you have any information, no matter how small you think it is, about Evelyn Slay’s murder, please call the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office at (904) 630-2172.
