LEE COUNTY, FL – Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers hopes that a higher reward and a new billboard will bring a renewed focus to the murder of a young mother that remains unsolved nearly three and a half years later. According to the authorities, Destiney Bocanegra was shot in front of a house in Bonita Springs, near Matheson Avenue and Goodwin Street, in April 2018. When the shots were heard, the 25-year-old mother stood in front of her four-year-old son to protect him. Sadly, Destiney lost her life in the process. She was also pregnant with her second child at the time of the murder.
Over the past three years, suggestions have been received about the Destiney case, however Crime Stoppers hopes that the additional reward money will be the key to getting someone to come forward. The reward in Destiney’s case has now increased to $ 20,000, with $ 3,000 coming from Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers, $ 6,500 from the Florida Association of Crime Stoppers and $ 10,500 coming from Destiney’s family.
Late last week, a billboard was also put up in the area of US 41 and Old 41 in Pretty, asking for suggestions to help resolve this case. Anyone with information about the Destiney Bocanegra murder should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477). All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $ 20,000. You can also tip online at www.southwestfloridacrimestoppers.com or in the P3Tips mobile app.
