Karina Vetrano Memorial Reward Fund

$295,342 of $400,000 goal

Raised by 4,740 people in 18 months
This GoFundMe page is being established in the name of Karina Vetrano. A beautiful. vivacious 30-year-old woman who was brutally murdered on the night of August 2nd when she went out for her nightly jog only blocks from her home in Howard Beach.

We are a committee of 5 people who represent the Howard Beach community, and we are joined by Karina’s parents, Cathy and Phil, in establishing this page. The money that we seek to raise here is to supplement the $20,000 reward currently offered by the NYPD. While we greatly appreciate the help of the police, Howard Beach is a community not known for sitting back while other people work on our behalf. Karina has become the “daughter” of the entire community and we are committed to seeing justice served in her memory.

We need your help in bringing this vicious animal to face the most sever punishment allowable by law.

Every dollar from you will help to bring her family and our community one step closer to the only thing that can help now and that is an arrest and conviction.

These funds are the only thing that we feel we can do to encourage anyone with information to come forward with something that will led to an arrest. We hope and pray that you will read this and recognize that an event like this is universal. It could happen to your daughter, your sister, your mother.

At a time like this we know that our fellow human beings will be happy to join in this quest to bring the only sense of peace possible to a family ripped apart by this horrendous act.

Please help us bring Karina’s killer to justice.

Hello world. I am sorry for the long absence but these have been trying times.
I want to thank you all again for your continued never ending support. The first Karina Vetrano Memorial Scholarship at Molloy has been given out. Yep your generosity has enabled one girl to get a 4 yr scholarship to the best high school in NY. Cathie and myself personally picked her from a small list of incoming girls. And she is perfect, Karina would have picked her herself. And as you all probably know I am by no means done with the Good. Thank you all again, this would not have been possible with out all of you.
Ona another note . For those that have not been following the case of the deamon murderer . On Monday February 26 the judge will have a ruling of the admissibility of all the evidence . We are very confident that all will be admitted and we will be one step closer to justice for Karina.

Today’s the day. Thanks to all you supporters out there, all of you that have been behind us since the beginning.
Today familial DNA testing is in use in NY STate. Yep today all the murderers, pedofiles, rapists and terrorists have to worry about the law coming to get them. Only the 11th state to have such a tool but I’m working on it.
There is no stopping us, together we will seek out and eliminate all the shit in the world. I will update as soon as the first soon to be incarcerated piece of shit is found using Karina’s Law

Hello world . Although ther are no "good" days, today was as good as it gets. Ther was a court day today and we expected another stall by the defense . What we got was more than we could have hoped for. After 3 separate evaluations. From the defense picked psychologist . The defense dropped all psycho defense . Meaning that the hand pick guy they hired couldn't say he didn't know what he did. He's not crazy. He will pay for what he did to my baby. Thank you Karina
