The reward for information about the killing of a mother in the Town of Tonawanda has more than tripled to a total of $25,000.
The FBI announced today it was contributing $17,500 to the existing $7,500 Buffalo Crime Stoppers reward offer in connection with the Danielle Cretacci murder investigation. The announcement was made Friday afternoon at a joint press conference with the Town of Tonawanda Police Department.
Cretacci was killed in a triple shooting that took place early in the morning of Aug. 27 in a home in the 100 block of Ebling Avenue near Kenney Field. Cretacci's two young daughters were also shot; one of them called police to alert them about what had taken place. The daughters were released from the hospital about a week after the incident.
"There's no doubt in my mind" that this was a targeted murder, acting Town of Tonawanda Police Chief James Stauffiger said.
Stauffiger said he could not get into additional details of the case.
