BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

It's a crime caught on camera or at least part of it, and that may be the problem. A shooting death in Baton Rouge has gone unsolved and that camera may have been the only eyes watching. 

It all happened in a quiet business parking lot in the 2600 block of North Street in Baton Rouge. A quiet that was shattered early in the morning about 14 months ago. Police get a call around 8 a.m. that a woman has been found dead. 

"We would determine that she had been dumped here, about 2:30 in the morning of March 26, 2015," said Det. Logan Collins with the Baton Rouge
Police Department. 

Detectives said the woman was shot multiple times. They would identify the woman as Jemina Williams

One of the first questions asked was 'Is there only one crime scene, or is there another one out there they should be looking for?' 

"The belief is that as the car pulled in, she is alive, and after she is killed on scene," Collins said. 

So going with that theory, there is only one crime scene to investigate. The only known witness right now is a surveillance camera that was motion sensitive.  It was able to pick up the vehicle as it pulled into the lot, but it didn't record the whole time. 

"Obviously it appears the vehicle pulled into this lot to try and hide he murder and the action itself," Collins said."It appears the suspect in the video is trying to clean the scene, to pick up evidence." 

And to this point, it looks like that may have worked. Silent surveillance footage leading to a very active crime scene and back to a very silent community.  Investigators are hoping for a little more noise now. 

Anyone with information about what may have happened to Jemina Williams is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-7867.
