Trooper Johnny Bowman was stabbed to death when an unidentified male attacked him at his home in Manassas, Virginia. A suspect was identified but was never charged due to a lack of evidence.
Trooper Bowman had served with the agency for 5 years. He is survived by his wife, who is a friend of mine, and his toddler daughter, who is now a police officer.
The Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Criminal Intelligence Division, Manassas City Police Department, and the Prince William County Commonwealth Attorney's Office renewed the effort to solve the murder in 2012.
Bowman was repeatedly stabbed by an assailant when he answered his front door on the day he was killed. The killer fled on foot, leaving behind eyeglasses, a wig and a construction hard hat. Perhaps most significant, the assailant left behind DNA evidence that continues to be analyzed. Police say advances in forensic testing have yielded new information in the case. Task Force members are analyzing evidence and actively pursuing new leads.
The FBI, Virginia State Police and Manassas City Police Department announced a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for Bowmanís murder.
