UPDATE (WKOW) — Madison police say they’re still committed to solving the murder of a woman, six years after her death.

Six years ago, Julia Majette was shot and killed in her home on North Thompson Drive on June 12th, 2013.

She and her husband had three kids in the home, all 6 years old or younger. Police say two of the kids saw part of the shooting.

The children are now living with an aunt.

Madison Police detectives do not consider this a cold case, even 6 years later. They hope this anniversary will bring them the final key close this case.

A Joel DeSpain with the Madison Police Department says they’ve gotten tips over the years but none resulted in an arrest. He says detectives believe someone in the community knows something.

“Whether they’re fearful of retribution or whatever the case might be, we just ask them to think about a young mother with three children and someone out there today who really should be behind bars,” DeSpain said.

Majette’s husband was also shot multiple times in the attack. Initially, police say he did not cooperate with investigators but has since worked with them.

DeSpain said it’s not rare that people sit on information for years until working up the courage to come forward.’

They ask anyone with information to contact Madison Area Crime Stoppers through this website.
