Reward Up To $33,500 In CHOP Doctor's Murder

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

A reward of $33,500 is now being offered in the case of the death of Dr. Melissa Ketunuti, FOX 29's Dave Schratwieser reports.

Ketunuti's body was found Monday burning inside of her Center City home. Police say her dog-walker came across the woman's body.

Ketunuti's body was still burning when emergency responders arrived on scene, investigators said.

On Tuesday, police combed the neighborhood in search of surveillance video that might help retrace Ketunuti's steps before her death.

Ketunuti worked at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

The Citizens Crime Commission says the money for the reward comes from a variety of people and groups, including Councilman Kenyatta Johnson's Office, CEO of Parkway Corp. Joseph Zuritski, The University of Pennsylvania & Penn Medicine, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Larry Collins of Collins' Shop Rite and Jeff Brown of Brown's Shop Rite. The city, according to the Citizen's Crime Commission, is also adding up to $20,000.

FOX 29's Dave Schratwieser will have live reports on the FOX 29 News at 5 and 6 p.m. Stay with myfoxphilly.com for updates.
