Woman slain in Greenbelt identified

Matt Zapotosky

Prince George’s County police have identified the woman slain Tuesday in a Greenbelt apartment building as 49-year-old Jacklyn Ann Bass.

Lt. Tammy Sparkman, a police department spokesman, said Bass was shot to death, but investigators do not yet have any suspects or motive in her killing.

Officers were alerted to the homicide about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday when a group of people called 911 to report an unresponsive woman lying in the foyer of an apartment in the 8500 block of Greenbelt Road.

She was transported to a nearby hospital, where she died a short time later, Sparkman said.

Bass lived at the same address where she was found, Sparkman said.

Has life in Prince Georges County been so devalued that the murder of Jackie Bass in what was her home (she was in the process of moving out of the apartment where she was shot in the head) goes by almost unnoticed?

I saw nothing in the print version of The Washington Post. The public needs to know about this so the killer can be brought to justice and not have the opportunity to kill anyone else.
