Following the brutal death of Karina Vetrano, jogger in the borough of New York City, the Howard Beach community has come together to start a GoFundMe page to help police find and bring her killer to justice. According to the New York Daily News, the NYPD already posted a $20,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the fugitive.

However, the tight knit community wants to give potential witnesses more of an incentive to come forward. The page, which was created Tuesday, has managed to raise more than $220,000 thanks to more than 3,000 donors.

Despite finding a DNA sample on Vetrano, the authorities have not been able to identify the killer. Police believe that she was sexually assaulted prior to strangulation on Aug 2, but no arrests have been made.

During a chat with Pix 11, the victim's father, Phil Vetrano revealed that he had a feeling something wasn't right after his daughter failed to return home from her run. He told the news team, "I got a feeling. It came over me." 

He continued, "She was talking to me then. And I got off that couch, and I went looking for her.” Once Vetrano contacted police and the search began, he soon found the body of his 30-year-old daughter. Riddled with grief, his wife, Kathy Vetrano said that while she is a forgiving person who believes in God, she will never forgive the person who murdered her daughter.

Detectives also haven't ruled out that there may be a connection between Vetrano's murder and 27-year-old jogger, Vanessa Marcotte, the Google account manager who was reported missing by her mother when she didn’t return home from an afternoon jog in suburban Boston. Marcotte, who lived in New York City, was visiting her family in Princeton, Massachusetts. When found, her feet, hands and face were burned and police believe she may have been sexually assaulted.

According to the Mirror, police announced the women's murders have similarities and that they will be investigating the cases at every angle.
