BLOOMINGTON — A month after the shooting death of a Bloomington accountant, police say the investigation is progressing into Pamela Zimmerman's homicide, but no arrests have been made.
"We are diligently continuing to investigate this and are looking for the public's help in developing new leads," BPD spokeswoman Sara Mayer said Wednesday.
In a follow-up news release issued Wednesday afternoon, police again asked for the public's help with possible evidence that may exist on home or business surveillance video in an area that includes Washington Street south to Oakland Avenue, and from Clinton Street east to Regency Drive on Nov. 3 and Nov. 4.
Also of interest is the 2100 block of East Washington, the location of Zimmerman's office building. Anyone with information is asked to call BPD at 309-434-2963.
So far, police have declined to address whether they think the homicide was a random act, and have conducted several searches at and nearby the crime scene, but have not discussed what they are looking for, or what they have found. Those searches have included property around Beer Nuts at 103 N. Robinson St., and a Bloomington home.
Zimmerman's death was discovered after a family friend called police on the morning of Nov. 4 to check on her well-being. Police found her body in her office at 2103 E. Washington St. The coroner's office later said she suffered multiple gunshot wounds.
Her office remains closed, an assistant at the office said Wednesday, declining further comment. Through Zimmerman's business website, clients are being referred to the Missouri regional office of Cetera Financial Specialists.
In an open letter to friends and clients signed by Cetera partners Mark Finke, Thomas Mengel, Charles Surdyke and Thomas Murphy, Zimmerman is remembered as an "an inspiration in many ways to all of those who knew her."
The partners noted they worked closely with Zimmerman for more than a decade, providing support and consultation on client situations and wealth management practices. Officials with Cetera are expected to contact Zimmerman's clients to review their accounts and continue the strategies that were previously in place.
Clients with questions are asked to call the Missouri office at 888-469-6893.
Additionally, a trust fund has been established for the benefit of Zimmerman's three children. Checks can be made payable to "Pam S. Zimmerman Legacy Trust" and sent to MSMF, 12213 Big Bend Road, Kirkwood, Mo., 63122.
