New details released in death of Spruce Grove teacher
Three months after a 36-year-old Spruce Grove teacher was found murdered at her home in Parkland County, the RCMP are releasing more details in the events leading up to the woman's death.
Police say their investigation has revealed the day before Jolene Cote was found in her home on Oct. 13th, she played a soccer game at the Edmonton Soccer Centre located at 175415 - 106 A Avenue.
Then just before 10 p.m., police say she left the Edmonton Soccer Center in her 2002 silver Jeep Liberty and stopped at a store in Edmonton on Stony Plain Road where purchased some items and then left the store about an hour later.
RCMP say this was the last known location of Cote until she was found dead the next morning by her husband. The items Cote purchased at the store were found in the vehicle.
Police are also seeking information on three unique pieces of jewelry, which was missing from the family home. Police say they have been unable to determine whether or not Cote had these three pieces of jewelry with her during the time of her death. The jewelry is described as a set of rings, one is an engagement ring with a solitary diamond and a white and yellow gold band, and the second ring is a wedding band made with yellow gold. The third piece of jewelry is a necklace with silver chain and a diamond pennant.
Police are requesting assistance from anyone who may have seen Jolene or her vehicle between the time she left the retail store to the time she was found deceased. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Stony Plain RCMP at 780-968-7267.
Members of Cote's family are still offering a cash reward for information surrounding the woman's death. The award has been increased from $25,000 to $50,000.
So far no arrests have been made.
