Cold Case: 30 years since Jeffery Zolliecoffer’s murder

WATERLOO, Iowa (KWWL) – It’s been 30 years since the murder of Jeffery “Jo Jo” Zolliecoffer, whose body was found in a Waterloo river with multiple gunshot wounds.

On Sept. 16, 1989, Zolliecoffer’s autopsy declared he died of a gunshot wound to the head. He was 23 years old at the time of death. The last time he had been seen alive was Sept. 7, 1989 leaving a bar. He was declared missing two days later.

Waterloo Police have followed up on many leads over the years but have not made an arrest.

The case was reopened in 2013, but no new information on Zolliecoffer’s death has been found.
