Justice for Kathy
We have raised $5,000 as a reward for information that would bring Kathy's attacker(s) to justice. Someone knows something but is refusing to talk. Raising the reward to $50,000 could be enough incentive for someone to come forward with evidence that could solve the case. I will be 84 years old this year and my years on this earth are numbered. I dread the feeling that I may go to my grave never knowing who killed my daughter. Her name comes up in conversations every day. My heart breaks knowing how terrible her death must have been. Could I have done anything different that evening? I miss her so much. I get so angry knowing that I never had the opportunity to see her graduate from high school, go to college, marry, have children and be a joy to her sister, my husband and me.
Her canopy bed remains in her bedroom filled with stuffed animals. Kathy loved all God's creatures. She was kind to her schoolmates and stood up for those that were bullied or shunned. Kids can be cruel but Kathy was born with a kind heart and a gentle soul.
Whoever did this to Kathy is walking the streets while my daughter lies in a grave in a cemetery in Virginia. Where is the justice for Kathy? Almost 42 years have passed with different police officers being assigned to the case. The officers are kind and compassionate, but unable to come up with any answers. It seems like they have given up. Not so Kathy's friends who continue to search for answers. Their dedication gives me hope that some day, we will know.
You can find more information about the case by going to Kathy's website at kathybeatty.com. 100% of any funds raised will go towards the reward for information leading to the solving of the case. If the case is solved without the need for using all or any of the reward monies raised, the funds will be donated to St Jude's Hospital for Children in Memphis, TN in Kathy's name.
Thank you for any contribution you might consider. Even if you can not afford to help, thank you for reading Kathy's story. Join us in praying for Kathy and for answers.
I love you all,
Thank you all for continuing to support justice for Kathy. I am blessed by your kindness. I know none of us will give up until we find out who killed Kathy. I love you all. Pat
Kathy's website has been updated to show an increase in reward funds from $5,000 to $20,000. Our fund raising efforts continue as we seek to reach our goal of $50,000. Thank you for your help. Please continue to pray for answers and encourage others to give. Someone knows who killed Kathy. Someone knows who was with her that fateful night. After 42 years, can't that someone come forward now. Just think how much that we would mean to me and my family. Lord knows, I am not a vengeful person. I believe in forgiveness. If I could just look that person or persons in the eye and ask why.
All my love,
In 1977 my brother and myself were pulled into a car and almost kidnapped! Luckily I fought and screamed with all my might! This caught the attention of someone and we were both thrown from the car! The man's face forever etched in my mind! It was just about 7 yrs ago that I was watching a show about serial killers and Rodney Alcalas face came on the TV! I knew that was the man who had us in the car! I notified cold case workers in NY and they came out to interview me! I'm not saying that this guy was the only killer out there but this guy killed people all over the USA! I know he was in NJ in 1977......Just saying it's about the right time and close enough to be looked into! Good luck in your search! Prayers to you!
Whoever did this must not have been a repeat offender if they can't find him based off DNA. If so there would be a match on CODIS. This just breaks my heart. Someone out there knows something. This person had to have told someone. I pray you get some answers soon. This is just awful! I can't imagine the pain you have endured for all these years.
