WITH LITTLE to go on three days after a Northeast Philadelphia woman was found strangled in Pennypack Park, police last night announced an increased reward for information leading to her killer.
In addition to the city's standing $20,000 reward for a tip leading to an arrest and conviction in any homicide, Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 5 kicked in $10,000, and Philadelphia Federal Credit Union added $5,000 for information in the case, bringing the total reward to $35,000.
The victim, Constance "Connie" Murray, 46, a wife and mother of two young daughters, left her home about 9 p.m. Monday to go for a jog and never returned. A woman walking her dog found Murray's body in the woods off Holme Avenue near Convent about 6 a.m. Tuesday.
