Jamie Stickle, 33, a well-regarded bartender, was found dead in her Jeep, which was parked in her driveway at her apartment. The vehicle was engulfed in flames, and the coroner determined that she had been alive at the time of the fire due to the presence of smoke in her lungs. Prior to her death, she completed an evening shift at Sidekicks, a downtown bar in Pittsburgh, and then proceeded to Pegasus, another local club. She was declined admission at an exclusive bar and was last seen walking alone into a parking garage at approximately 2 AM.
Stickle had no known enemies and was noted for her dedication to various charitable causes. She had recently experienced a painful breakup, but the police did not find anything out of the ordinary with the girlfriend. Police did not have enough evidence to classify this incident as a homicide, and hundreds of interviews have not resulted in any solid leads. The $18,000 reward money raised to help solve this crime remains unclaimed.
