SAN ANTONIO – A quarter of a century  has passed since Antoinette Jordan was found shot to death. Her killer has never been caught. However, time might now be on the side of San Antonio police, who said evidence at the scene is being re-analyzed in an effort to solve the case.

The body of Jordan, 35, was found May 26, 1990 under the North Walters Street Bridge by a passerby.

Police said Jordan had been shot.

"The disarray of her clothing suggested sexual assault," police said.

Jordan's jewelry and personal items had not been taken, so police ruled out robbery as a motive.

"The investigation suggests that Antoinette Jordan may have known her killer," police said.

Jordan was the mother of eight children. At the time of her death, they ranged in age from three to 16.

SAPD's Cold Case Squad is still investigating the murder. If you have any information, call 210-207-7635.
