RARA-AVIS: Book ID: She's Scalped in Prologue

Hi, folks.
    I'm trying to help someone find a book - probably a slasher novel, although I suppose true crime is possible. Here is what they recall about the prologue:

"A young woman was walking home from work late one night, and she started to feel that she wasn't alone. Suddenly a man grabbed her, he either scalped her or gouged out her eyes or both, the last thing she heard before dying was the sound of her neck breaking. I am sorry I dont know any names or places, this is all I remember. I can tell you that the book was in paperback in 1995. I hope that helps. I believe the cover was done all in black."

Sounds like a fairly standard opening gambit for a slasher novel, but I post it here in case any of you read it and have some intestinal memory of the scene.

     Thanks for your help, my apologies for cross-posting.
