Pasco County Sheriff’s Office to investigate Maine woman’s death
The investigation into the death of a Maine woman, who was found dead near a highway in Florida last Thursday night, has been referred to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.
Jennifer Scammon of Saco, the victim’s sister, revealed on Sunday that the remains of Judith Therianos were discovered last Thursday near U.S. Highway 19 in Port Richey, Florida.
Police notified the family the following day but could not determine the cause and manner of the 52-year-old woman’s death. The case remains under investigation by the county’s medical examiner’s office.
In a statement issued on Sunday, Scammon said, “We would like to thank everyone that helped in the search for Judi, from those that walked the streets passing out fliers, to the DEEMI volunteer search team, to the media for assisting us in getting her story out.”
Scammon said Therianos went to Florida in February to visit friends, and added that it was highly unusual for her not to maintain contact with her family and three children in Maine. Investigators told the family that she had a black eye and was in the company of an older man named Charlie when she was last seen.
Handing over the case to a major crimes unit of the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office unit suggests that law enforcement suspects a foul play.
