SALINA, Kan. (AP) – A central Kansas family is using bake sales and raffles to increase the reward for information leading to their mother’s killers.

The Salina Journal reports Lori Heimer’s body was found June 25 in her home southeast of Assaria, where she operated a dog-breeding business. The Kansas Bureau of Investigation soon released descriptions of two men in connection with the case and the pickup trucks they were driving, but they haven’t been found.

Joni Alexander, one of Heimer’s four daughters, says KBI agents told her it was essential to raise awareness of her mom’s slaying.

A reward fund contains more than $50,000, and Alexander says the fundraisers help the family stay engaged in the search for anyone responsible for Heimer’s death.
