“EVERYONE DESERVES JUSTICE”
On the anniversary of the Bonnie Craig murder, September 28, 1994, we would like to celebrate our family’s victory and call attention to the other families who are still awaiting justice.
No one should get away with murder, rape, nor any other heinous crime. Now that Bonnie’s killer has been convicted the money that was collected shortly after Bonnie’s murder is offered as a reward to help find answers in other unsolved Alaskan murders.
The Homicide Reward Fund, a 501c3, formerly the Family and Friends of Bonnie Craig Reward Fund, is offering up to $20,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person/s responsible in the murders of four other Alaskan teenage girls.
- Shelley Connolly, 16, of Anchorage, was raped and murdered January 7th, 1978. Her body was found by the railroad tracks just past McHugh Creek. DNA evidence is available. She was last seen the night before talking with four men at Chilkoot Charlie’s.
- Eileen Wafer,14, of Haines, was home babysitting her younger brothers June 10, 1982. When her mother returned the boys were in bed, but Eileen was gone. Her body was found four days later under bushes on a beach in Portage Cove.
- Jessica Baggen, 17, of Sitka, was found raped and murdered May 6th, 1996 in Sitka. She left her sister’s after celebrating her 17th birthday on the 4th, but never made it home. Her body was found in a wooded area off a bike trail.
- Ann Saephan, 15, of Anchorage was a passenger in a car sitting in the parking lot at the Space Station on Spenard Road when a suspect fired several rounds into the rear of the car killing Ann. The suspect fled on foot and to this day has not been identified.
No one should get away with murder. We are asking the public to never forget, and those with any information to come forward. The Homicide Reward Fund will pay up to $20,000 to get these killers behind bars. They are a risk to us all. The families and friends of these teenage girls need answers and deserve justice. Contact the Alaska State Troopers Cold Case Investigations at 907 269-5611 or the Anchorage Police Department.
