Cold Case Spotlight: Brandy Lea Beverly
March 16, 2023
As the men and women of the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office continue to seek justice for crime victims, both old and new, and their loved ones, today a new campaign was introduced on JSO's social media, “Cold Case Spotlight”.
This monthly feature will spotlight a murder that the Sheriff's Office has classified as a cold case. The hope is that this will lead to the identity of a suspect(s) and in turn help bring some closure to those impacted by these senseless crimes.

This month’s spotlight is on Brandy Lea Beverly. On Wednesday, February 16, 2000, officers with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office responded to the 5700 block of Connie Jean Road on the city’s westside in reference to a reported death. Upon arrival, officers located the body of 23-year-old Brandy deceased – appearing to have been beaten and stabbed.

An autopsy conducted by the Medical Examiner’s Office concluded Brandy’s death was a homicide.

Homicide and Crime Scene Detectives began the daunting task of collecting and examining the available evidence – and continued following up leads extensively for several years following the crime. During which time, those potential leads were investigated, and several individuals were interviewed in the process. Eventually, those leads stopped, and without further information available the case went cold.

Brandy Beverly was the mother to four young children and was loved by her family.

Anyone having any information related to Brandy Beverly’s death is asked to contact the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office at 904.630.0500 or email us at To remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward of up to $3,000 call First Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.
