Cold Case Tuesday: State Police continue to investigate the 2000 homicide of a Catskill woman.
New York State Police from the Livingston barracks continue to investigate the homicide of 43-year-old Jacqueline McCalop of Catskill, New York. 

On September 30, 2000, the New York State Police responded to the shoreline of the Hudson River, south of the city of Hudson. 

Two duck hunters discovered a body on the east shoreline of the river in a secluded but accessible area at a boat launch off Hallenbeck Road in Greenport. 

The victim, identified as Jacqueline McCalop, had died as a result of stab wounds to her torso.   

An investigation revealed McCalop’s family had not seen her since September 14, 2000, and had reported her missing on September 24, 2000.
McCalop was a black female, 5’5”, and weighed approximately 110 pounds. 

McCalop’s death continues to be actively investigated by police.  Numerous leads have been followed-up on throughout this investigation, however, this homicide has never been solved. 

Police believe that someone in the city of Hudson has information that could lead to an arrest.  The information could help bring closure to McCalop’s family.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to contact the New York State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation in Livingston by calling (845) 677-7300 or (518) 851-2001.   Please refer to case# 3033979.
