Fund Justice for Christopher

Donation protected
For 28 years member of parents of murdered children  I would like you to help me fund the search  for my godson's killer.

His name was Christopher O'Connor; he was 22 when he was murdered.  The murder took place on April 11, 1987, outside L'Amour east nightclub, in Queens, New York.  His body was discovered near a garbage dumpster in the early mornings hours.

Hours before his death Christopher placed a 911 call for help. However, when the police arrived they left without speaking to witnesses who saw Christopher being beaten and dragged into the club by several bouncers.

To this day,the police have not declared his death a crime, why???  To remedy this mistake a thorough review of the evidence and reexamination of all the witnesses.  I understand the New York Police Department and the cold case department are overextended and do not have the time or resources to do all of this.  Therefore,  I would like to hire a private investigator and I need additional funds to do this. 

A good private investigator cost $250.00 an hour and a good one is required to get Christopher the justice he deserves.  I am hoping to raise $1500.00 to help cover the cost of the investigator.
This is where you come in; I need your help to keep the search going.   Please donate today, and you will be an important part of bringing justice to a young man with a big heart and spirit. Christopher was a man who could have given so much to the world but he was struck down before he could.

For the past 29 years I have tried to get Christopher the justice he deserves by finding and prosecuting his killers.  Sadly Christopher's killers remain at large.  A private investigator is needed and so is your support.  Thank you for your donation.  I love and miss Christopher every day; finding his murderer would allow his spirit to rest.  Even if you didn't know Christopher, your donation will make one if his guardian angels helping to bring him the justice he deserves. 

If you have any information on Christopher's demise, please send an email to [email redacted].
