The Trail Went Cold – Episode 82 – Jonathan Luna

December 3, 2003. Baltimore, Maryland. While working on a plea agreement, 38-year old prosecutor Jonathan Luna leaves his office at the Federal District Court Building shortly before midnight. The following morning, Luna’s vehicle is discovered over 90 miles away in a rural creek in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and his body is lying in the water. He has been stabbed 36 times with his own penknife, but while the Lancaster County Coroner’s Office are certain Luna was murdered, the FBI believe his death might have been a suicide. An investigation into Luna’s movements only opens up more questions, as he inexplicably made a detour through Delaware before travelling to Pennsylvania. Was Jonathan Luna a victim of foul play? And what was the purpose of his lengthy road trip? This week’s episode of “The Trail Went Cold” examines one of the most baffling unexplained deaths we have ever encountered.
