Michelle Martinko Cold Case Reward

Michelle Marie Martinko,18, was brutally and viciously stabbed to death on December 19, 1979 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Her murderer has yet to be apprehended, though recent DNA technology is raising our hopes. Besides the $5,000 Crimestopper reward, another $10,000 was donated in May 2017 with the hopes that the community would match it, raising the reward for the discovery of the killer to $25,000. Michelle's sister, Janelle Stonebraker and Janelle's husband John gave me permission to start this. Can we raise this as an incentive to get someone to talk? It would be money well spent. When we reach the goal, the money will be transferred to the reward fund with the CRPD. Any questions, please email rriley@solutionsco.net
