One Voice Raised: A Triumph Over Rape written by: Survivor Jennifer Wheatley-Wolf and Chief investigator, David Cordle, Sr.
Early in the morning of August 21, 1988, in Annapolis, Maryland, an unknown assailant climbed onto the balcony to the open door of Jennifer Wheatley’s home, crept down the stairs, entered her first floor bedroom, and waited for her in the dark. As he grabbed her and pulled something tight around her throat, she was sure her life was over.
” I never saw the face of the man who raped me. There was little evidence left behind. In 1988, technology wasn’t advanced enough to be of much help. It took 20 years to solve this crime. However, during this time my attacker continued to rape and assault.”
Since publication of One Voice Raised, 2 more victims have been linked through DNA to serial rapist, William Joseph Trice.
*May 31, 1987 in Montgomery County, Maryland.
*August, 1988 in Silver Springs, Maryland
”It brings peace of mind to Trice’s victims to know their attacker has been caught and convicted.
The importance of entering cold-case evidence into the national data-base can not be stressed enough.”
