The Pinal County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's assistance to help solve a 2009 cold case after investigators exhaust all leads. 

PCSO deputies responded to a home in the 6700 block of East Refuge Road in Florence on Feb. 13, 2009 shortly after 3 a.m. on reports of a break-in. 

According to PCSO. 49-year-old Carolynn Herrera was found with cuts and bruises all over her body. Herrera’s boyfriend made the initial call to 911, telling dispatchers he thought there was a break-in.
