Blue Line Unlimited Will Donate $1,500 to The Porchlight Project.
Cleveland, OH – The Porchlight Project announces the most significant contribution to our new nonprofit to date. Blue Line Unlimited will donate $1,500 which will be used to pay for new DNA tests and forensic genealogy in the unsolved murder of Barbara Blatnik. On December 20, 1987, around 10 a.m., the nude body of 17-year-old Barbara Blatnik was discovered alongside O’Neil Road, a narrow access road that leads into Blossom Music Center off Steels Corners.
Blue Line Unlimited provides assistance to police officers and their families in the way of benefits, training, education and equipment. “Blue Line Unlimited is pleased to support the Porchlight Project in their endeavors to clear cold cases,” says Vice President Ralph Spidalieri. “DNA evidence procedures and testing has come a long way. Hopefully their efforts will bring closure, both to the victims and their families.”
“This significant donation from Blue Line Unlimited makes it possible for The Porchlight Project to pay for new DNA tests in the Barbara Blatnik case,” says James Renner, Founder and President of The Porchlight Project. “Their contribution may help us finally put a name to Barbie’s killer.” For more information about The Porchlight Project, and to make a donation of any size, please visit PorchlightOnline.org.
