Fundraiser Sept 18 for funeral and burial of East Hampton woman found murdered

September 17, 2012 Local News No Comments

The remains of Jini Barnum, 30, of East Hampton, CT were found in shallow grave in Glastonbury, CT on Sept. 9.

The Middletown Eagles will hold a drop-in Setback Night to help raise funds for final expenses for Jini Barnum, the 30-year-old East Hampton mother whose remains were found earlier this month in Glastonbury.

All are welcome to attend.

The fundraiser begins at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 18 at the club’s meeting place, 64 Stack St. in Middletown, CT.

For those unable to attend this or other upcoming fund-raising events, donations can be made by sending a check made out to Eagles F.O.E. 681. Please be sure to note “Jini Barnum” in the memo area of the check, and mail to: Middletown Eagles, 64 Stack St., Middletown, CT 06457.

Barnum was a member of the Middletown Eagles, who mounted their own search efforts for the young woman who was reported missing by her boyfriend, Anthony Garofalo, on July 29.  Garofalo is now a suspect in Barnum’s murder.

Barnum’s remains were discovered Sept. 9 by a woman on a hiking trail in Glastonbury. The State Medical Examiner determined the cause of her death to be “compression” and “asphyxiation” – or strangulation. The case is under investigation by East Hampton and Glastonbury police and the CT State Police departments.
