The full true story of the lululemon murder and what really happened to Jayna Murray and Brittany Norwood--photos included.
It was a crime that shocked the country. On March 12, 2011, two young saleswomen were found brutally attacked inside a lululemon athletica retail store in Bethesda, Maryland, one of the nation’s wealthiest suburbs.
Thirty-year-old Jayna Murray was dead—slashed, stabbed, and struck more than three hundred times. Investigators found blood spattered on walls, and size fourteen men’s shoe prints leading away from her body.
Twenty-eight-year-old Brittany Norwood was found alive, tied up on the bathroom floor. She had lacerations, a bloody face, and ripped clothing. She told investigators that two masked men had slipped into the Bethesda lululemon store just after closing, presumably planning to rob it. She spoke of the night of terror she and her coworker had experienced. Investigators were sympathetic…but as the case went on, Brittany’s story began to unravel. Why rob a business that dealt mostly in credit cards? Why was Jayna murdered but Brittany left alive? Could the petite, polite Brittany have been involved? Most chilling of all: could she have been the killer?

Dan Morse has written a compelling and spellbinding story of the true events which captured the attention of millions drawn to the outrageous Lululemon murder. Truly one of those oft cited but rarely encountered books one simply can not put down until the final page. My compliments to Dan Morse and to all those who came to play a role in unravelling the famous Bethesda murder. But special thanks to the Murray family for their help in telling us of their beautiful heroic child.
This book is great. Extremely well written and chilling. Unbelievable story.
I had no prior knowledge of the case. The author lays it all out diligently and expertly. An altogether chilling account, it gives one pause about the senseless, dark depths that can be thoughtlessly succumbed to.
