Months After NJ Mom and Son Slaughtered at Home, No Killer Identified
MAPLE SHADE — It's been almost five months since Sasikala Narra and her 6-year-old son Anish were found slain in their home. And their killer, whoever he or she may be, is still out there.
Prosecutors this week called on the public to share any information that could help investigators find a suspect.
The bodies of the 38-year-old mother and her son were found by their husband and father in their home on the evening of March 23. Police say the two had been stabbed to death.
The case made headlines in India, where the family's relatives live.
Prosecutors say there is no indication that the slayings were a hate crime, which some media outlets in India had speculated. Authorities have not said whether they suspect anyone or what the motive might have been.
Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina credited the Indian Cultural Center of South Jersey with working with law enforcement to try and find answers.
"Members of several law enforcement agencies are working tenaciously to provide justice for Sasikala Narra and her son Anish," he said. "I understand the frustration on the part of the victims' family and others who are deeply saddened and angered by these terrible deeds. We share that sadness and outrage from these heinous killings, and are committed to solving this case."
Prosecutor's spokesman Joel Bewley said that while no arrests have been made in the case, law enforcement is "attempting to utilize every tool at our disposal to bring it to a successful conclusion."
The prosecutor asks anyone with information about the case to call Burlington County Central Communications at 609-265-7113.
