Family doubles reward to find killer

The family of a mentally disabled woman murdered in her Carlsbad condominium three years ago has now doubled a reward for finding her killer.

The reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever killed Jodine Elizabeth Serrin was raised to $2,000, according to San Diego County Crime Stoppers.

The 39-year-old woman’s body was found by her parents, who went to her home in the 1900 block of Swallow Lane after they hadn’t heard from her in several days.

When they went inside, they found a partially dressed man in his 30s in bed with her, and he escaped when they went into another room.

Serrin’s parents returned to her room and found her unconscious, but were unable to revive her. An autopsy revealed she died of blunt force head injuries.

The woman was high-functioning and was active in several organizations for the mentally ill.

Anyone with information about the case was asked to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477, or go to
