FBI, Pa. Stumped On Federal Prosecutor’s Death


A year after the violent death of Baltimore federal prosecutor Jonathan Luna, FBI and Pennsylvania investigators said yesterday they still cannot explain it, the Baltimore Sun reports. They have found no evidence that the lawyer “met with” anyone in the hours before his body was discovered with multiple stab wounds in a Pennsylvania field. They stopped short of calling the death a suicide. Luna’s parents are convinced that Luna’s death was a homicide – as was indicated on the death certificate issued by the Lancaster County, Pa., coroner’s officer.

Authorities yesterday asked again for assistance in filling in a nearly two-hour gap in a timeline they have put together of Luna’s activities on the night he died. The time frame in question is from 12:57 a.m. to 2:47 a.m. on Dec. 4, 2003. That is the time between when Luna used his debit card at a highway rest stop ATM and when his car passed through the Delaware River Bridge toll plaza on Route 276 in Pennsylvania. The FBI is offering a reward of up to $100,000 for “information of significant relevance.”
