$10,000 Reward Goes To Special Needs Students

Posted: Updated:

  Reward money to help catch a killer is going to help students with special needs.

  Tuesday, the Crime Commission presented Memorial High School a check for $10,000.

  It will go to a program called "Kayla's Kids" in memory of Kayla Ferrante.

  She was murdered just days after graduating from Memorial last May.

  The money was donated by the community to catch the suspect.

  But after Tulsa Police solved the case, the money was not needed for a Crime Stopper tip, so it was donated to the school.

  Crime Commission Director Carol Bush says, "Kayla's memory lives on long after her short life was cut short, I think that's something this community needs especially this year with some of the tragedies we've had."

  Ferrante had planned to work with special needs children after graduating college.

  24-year-old Edwin Daniels is facing trial for Ferrante's death.
