Karina Vetrano Memorial Reward Fund

$297,122 of $400,000 goal

Raised by 4,817 people in 31 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.

Dodgy starts jury selection. I never thought it but that’s the most important part of the trial. Yes it truly is, you would think evidence mattered , but it really doesn’t. People have an agenda, people are jealous. Let’s all pray we get a just , fair , intelligent jury.
I’ll keep u all updated on the status.
Thank you all for all your support

As I mentioned in my previous update. The article in Newsday came out today. And as I predicted it is excellent, you should all pick up a copy.
In this article some facts that won’t be revealed in court are there in black and white. Just buy reading the article you know he’s guilty. Read it And spread it everywhere, we want the facts known to the world . This time he will get his punishment here on earth. And soon he will meet Karina again. Karina along with her friends Michel and Gabriel will take care of that piece of shit and he will suffer till the end of time.

...praying for your family's continued strength and that you and Karina finally get the justice she deserves - though she deserved none of this, and any one of us could have easily been in her shoes, and on that note - thank you for what you have done to help us by getting the familial DNA law get traction in NYS. How you accomplished this in such an agonizing period of your life is beyond imagination, God Bless you and keep you strong as you fight for justice for Karina, and beyond that, in the beautiful way you honor her legacy.
