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.
