    Police say no motive has been established in this homicide.

    Jammie Lane will not be soon forgotten by the Leesburg Police.

    On the afternoon of March 26, 2009, Lane was found dead in his home in the 100 block of Adams Drive NE in Leesburg. He was 44.

    "This was a particularly brutal homicide," Leesburg police said in a release today, noting Lane had been stabbed multiple times.

    Police are still considering accused serial stabber Elias Abuelazam as a person of interest in this case, said Public Information Officer C.F. Tidmore.

    Authorities hope someone will remember a detail that could lead to an arrest.

    Lane was well-known in the community and was described to be a "genuinely nice and caring person who would stop and help anyone," the Leesburg Police said.

    Anyone with information on this case is urged to call the Leesburg Police Department at 703-771-4502 or the Leesburg Crime Line at 703-443-TIPS (8477).

    Abuelazam was arrested in 2010, suspected of attacking people in Michigan, Ohio and Virginia. At least five were dead and 13 wounded. He was extradited to Michigan.


    He is supsected in three Leesburg attacks on Aug. 3, 5 and 6, 2010. In the first and second incidents, a 15-year-old boy and a 67-year-old man were stabbed. In the third attack, a 19-year-old man was struck with a blunt object. All survived.
