The case against whoever shot a Hermitage mother at her home last Sunday appears to be emerging from a large amount of forensic evidence, including DNA, left at the murder scene.

Metro detectives in the Hermitage Precinct continue to build what Cmdr. Todd Henry called a strong case of circumstantial evidence surrounding Veronica Chiaramonte Bozza’s murder.

Henry said Friday his detectives were following good leads in the case based of off that evidence.

Bozza’s boyfriend found her shot to death in her home at 5240 John Hagar Road around 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 29, about an hour after she dropped her 8-year-old son off with her estranged husband in a parking lot on Thompson Lane.

The 39-year-old mother was born in Milan, Italy, but later moved to the U.S. where she worked in music and television production in Nashville as well as New York and California.

Bozza worked as a producer on such programs as “Can You Duet?” “Live from the House of Blues” and the 2009 CMT Music Awards, according to IMDB.com.

Bozza’s funeral was held Sunday at St. Edward Catholic Church.
