ATLANTA, GEORGIA: In a gruesome crime, a 40-year-old woman from Atlanta, Georgia, was fatally stabbed along with her pet dog, while they were out on a walk. The incident happened inside Piedmont Park — a popular spot at 10th Street and Charles Allen Drive in Midtown Atlanta. Katherine Janness and her dog Bowie had gone out for a walk around 1 am on July 28, 2021, when the shocking attack took place.
Before heading out early on July 28, Janness had informed her wife that she was taking the dog out for a quick walk. However, when she failed to return after hours, her wife went out looking for her. She was the one to discover Janness' and Bowie's mutilated bodies inside the Piedmont Park. While the investigation is ongoing, local police have declared a reward for any information regarding the murder.
Who was Katherine Janness?
According to a Facebook user named Clayton Skinner, Katherine Janness was also known as 'Katty' or 'Katie' in her circles. She worked as a bartender/server at Campagnolo Restaurant and Bar in Atlanta. Sharing the tragic news about Janness, Skinner wrote, "Shocked and saddened to learn about the brutal murder of Katty (Katherine Janness) last night while walking her dog. She had been a bartender/server at Campagnolo for years, and I can’t imagine the pain of all her family, friends and co-workers. It’s beyond tragic."
Speaking about the murder, Atlanta PoliceDeputy Chief Charles Hampton Jr said, "It's a gruesome scene." The police arrived at the park after they received a 911 call informing them of the murder. Later, the police department released a photo of Janness and her dog. Believed to be taken from surveillance camera footage, the photo shows Janness and Bowie walking across a rainbow-painted crosswalk near the park. Police have offered a reward of $10,000 for information about the murder, as investigators try to find whether it was a premeditated act or Janness fell victim to a random act of violence.
Mourning Janness's death, Facebook user Gabrielle Smith wrote, "Rest in peace, Katie and pup, this is not what you deserved. If you know anything about what happened, there is a reward offered. Please contact APD Homicide 404-546-4235 or Crimestoppers 404-577-TIPS. My deepest sympathy to Katie's wife and family."
