There are some disturbing similarities between the Bochicchio murder and the case of a mother and 2-year-old son robbed at the same mall back in August.

Both involved a mother and young child where cash was stolen. But, according to our partners at the Palm Beach Post, in both cases, the women were bound with zip ties, their necks tied to the head rest, and goggles were put over their eyes.

So why didn't police release this sketch after the first incident?

A relative tells the Post that Boca Raton police did not initially believe the first victim's story until the Bochicchio murder.

There is still a $350,000 reward for the killer. If you know anything, call 1-800-458-TIPS.

The public has already helped catch two others wanted for questioning in this case. Both of these men found items taken from Nancy Bochicchio's SUV, but they are not considered suspects.
