SOUTH SALT LAKE — Detectives say they want to be "as aggressive as possible" in their investigation into the death of Sherry Black.
"We still have not tied down a motive or a suspect," South Salt Lake police detective Gary Keller said Wednesday.
In an effort to turn up the pressure, police convinced America's Most Wanted to profile Black on its website. On the AMW Web page, there is a summary of Black's homicide case.
Black, 64, a South Salt Lake book dealer and the mother-in-law of Larry H. Miller Group CEO Greg Miller, was found by her husband Nov. 30 at the family's business, B&W Billiards and Books, 3466 S. 700 East, next to their home. She had been stabbed and beaten to death.
There was no sign of a robbery inside the bookstore.
"We can't determine if anything was taken," said South Salt Lake Police Lt. Dwayne Ruth on the website. "We're talking thousands and thousands of books — piles of them everywhere. This is inventory only she was familiar with in her mind. There was money in the cash register that was left and plenty of things of value that could have been taken but weren't."
Ruth also told the show that the bookstore is not very well-known and received very little walk-in traffic. Most of the customers were those who had previously made appointments, he said.
One of the key pieces of evidence left behind was a unique Armani Exchange men's belt with a waist measurement of approximately 36-38 inches.
Keller said Wednesday there were no immediate plans for "America's Most Wanted" to do a feature on Black's case on the television show.
The "America's Most Wanted" segment follows the launch of a website last week, also designed to collect more information about her death. The construction of www.sherryblackinfo.com and a Twitter account features a tips and leads page and a collection of news articles about Black and her case.
In addition, a billboard asking motorists if they know who killed Black was put up on the 600 South offramp in downtown Salt Lake City, an electronic billboard that rotates ads, typically reserved for advertising Utah Jazz events.
