RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – More than a year after her murder, Richmond police are trying to generate new leads in the death of Bonnie Marrow.

Police have released two new surveillance photos of her and her vehicle.

Marrow was found shot to death inside her car on 25th Street in Richmond on the morning of December 22, 2011.

She was on her way to work, but made a stop first at a Wawa on Airport Drive.

Police believe Marrow was shot somewhere in the vicinity of Nine Mile Road and the Mechanicsville Turnpike corridor between 7:15 and 7:20 a.m. after visiting her son’s grave.

That could be why in this second photo of her driving near Nine Mile Road and 25th Street her headlights were turned off.

Police don’t know if Marrow forgot to turn them on or was in some sort of distress and wasn’t thinking clearly.

Police would later find Marrow’s body slumped over the steering wheel, dead from a bullet.

Ironically, the car crashed just a few feet away from the police station in the Church Hill area of Richmond.

They apparently have have video of people near the car that morning, but say they aren’t ready to release it yet.

They’re asking anyone with information to call them – (804) 780-1000.
