This week we have two stories of women who were murdered and laid to rest, Reyna Marroquín and Michelle Schroader. It would take decades before Reyna would be able to rest in peace, and Michelle and her family are still waiting for their day.

UPDATE: In less than 12 hours our Crime Junkies raised enough money to have Michelle’s remains moved! Kara has applied for a permit with the funeral home and she hopes to have the move completed in 3-5 months. All money raised over the $4,000 that was needed will be donated to OASIS Women’s Shelter, a local domestic violence program in the area where Michelle lived for battered women and their dependent children.
