Karina Vetrano Memorial Reward Fund

$296,866 of $400,000 goal

Raised by 4,799 people in 29 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.

Ran the Stephen Stiller tunnel to towers run last Sunday as we’ve done every year for my baby . And as our tradition we always go to Brooklyn Crab in red Hook. As I was walking up the stairs I was met by the manager who said to me “we were expecting u”. The treated us like royalty, the food was fantastic and they gave us a family discount . It’s a great place and I highly recommend it

Hello world. Thank you for your never ending support.
We are very close to having that piece of shit put away forever. There is a trial date set for 10/29 . That would be jury selection than trial. It shouldn’t be that long. . The defense has nothing and the animal should spend thanksgiving in real jail, I hope they have him for desert.
Thank you again, I will keep u posted
