The investigation of a South Salt Lake woman who was murdered in November at her bookstore has risen to a national level.

On Tuesday, the nationally syndicated crime TV show "America's Most Wanted" posted details and photos about the case of Sherry Black on its website.

South Salt Lake police contacted the TV show to get nationwide attention for the case and possibly a few more tips.

Black and her husband, Earl Black, ran B&W Billiards and Books from a building next to their home at 3466 S. 700 East.

On Nov. 30, Black found his wife beaten and stabbed to death when he returned home.

There are still no suspects or motive in the murder, but Gary Keller of South Salt Lake police said leads are still coming in.

"The flow of information is diminishing , but it has not stopped," Keller said. "We want to get as much information as possibleā€¦and it just takes that one bit of information that will tie all this together."

Keller said initially America's Most Wanted contacted police when the case was made public and asked if they could help. Keller said they were in the initial phases of the investigation at the time, but the case could use more exposure because the killer may have left the state.

"America's Most Wanted" spokesman Avery Mann said the case was brought to their attention because of local media reports.

Mann said there are talks about potentially highlighting the case on the national TV broadcast. He said both TV and the Internet have proved effective in catching fugitives since the show's debut in 1988.

"We have captured dozens of fugitives, just because of the website," Mann said, adding that since the show began, TV and Internet leads have led to 1,143 captures. —
