ATLANTA (AP) — Investigators sought video from homes and businesses near a popular Atlanta park as divers searched a pond in their quest to solve the stabbing death of a park-goer who was walking her dog.

Forty-year-old Katherine Janness was found dead in Piedmont Park around 1 a.m.

Her dog was also killed.

No arrests have been made.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that investigators have gone door-to-door asking neighbors for surveillance footage.

Divers also spent much of Wednesday searching a pond in the park.

Janness was a bartender at a nearby restaurant.

Mourners have left flowers, as well as dog treats, near the park entrance where her body was found.
