Nancy Paoletti, a senior communications major at Penn State Beaver, has completed a student project that could help area police solve the murder of a 94-year-old woman who was killed seven years ago in a home invasion in Beaver County. Police have determined that Paoletti's work may be helpful in continuing their investigation on the cold case.
Paoletti is a student in the television field production class taught by John Chapin, professor of communications, who requires students to complete a service learning project. Chapin and Paoletti partnered with police, the district attorney's office and first responders at the crime scene to create a video detailing the case. Paoletti can be contacted at email@example.com, and Chapin can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 724-773-3877.
