Barbie Blatnik DNA fund

Barbie Blatnik was a dynamic teenager with a bright future ahead of her when her life was tragically and violently ended  on December 20, 1987. Her killer has not been caught. Over 30 years later, technology has finally advanced to the point of possibly identifying her murderer through DNA testing. The Porch Light Project has chosen Barbie's unsolved murder as their 1st case to solve. Please consider donating to The Porch Light Project to help cover the cost of the DNA testing. We are hopeful that they can identify the DNA of this monster, bring peace to her family and friends and justice to Barbie.
All proceeds will be given to Porchlight to pay for the DNA testing.
