    OMG! How horrible! A bullet went through the license plate, through the back of the seats and out her chest! That poor girl! She had her whole life ahead of her! She was beautiful, smart, and LOVED by her family and now she's gone. So sad! Unimaginable!

    I wonder if police think it was random? Doesn't sound like the kind of girl anyone would want to harm. I pray they find the person who did this!

    I just read this so sad. I'm curious if they have questioned the people that ran inside when the bf realized she had been shot and said he was yelling for help. Prayers for her family, she was young beautiful and caring and her family deserves to know what happened. I hope they get answers soon.

    Kayla Ferrante: She was shot while riding in a car the day after her high school graduation.

    "Someone knows who did this and why," the slain teen's mother says.

    The parents of a 17-year-old girl who was fatally shot May 26 have established an extra reward fund in an effort to solicit information about her killer.


    Kayla Ferrante was shot while riding in a car driven by her boyfriend in the area of 15th Street and 122nd East Avenue on the day after her high school graduation. Police have not publicly named any suspects.

    "Someone knows who did this and why - that person needs to come forward," Ferrante's mother, Roxanne Thornton, said in an email Monday.

    Thornton and Ferrante's father, Paul Ferrante, created the extra reward fund through the Crime Commission's Crime Stoppers program. The program offers rewards for information resulting in the arrest and conviction of people responsible for unsolved crimes.

    Tips on the slaying were already eligible for a reward through Crime Stoppers, but an "extra funds" reward will be available in Ferrante's case upon receipt of designated donations from the public, said Carol Bush, the Crime Commission's executive director.

    The commission chooses which unsolved crimes to collect extra reward funds for on a case-by-case basis.

    "We're hoping that it will shake the bushes a little bit" and some information will come of it, Bush said.

    If information used to make an arrest in the killing is not gleaned through Crime Stoppers, the money will be donated to the Memorial High School Special Needs fund.

    Anyone with information about Kayla Ferrante's homicide is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS or submit a tip online at tulsaworld.com/crimestoppers Tipsters can be anonymous.


    Kayla Ferrante reward fund
    Checks made payable to the Crime Commission can be sent to:

    2121 S. Columbia Ave., LL8

    Tulsa, OK 74114

    Note "Kayla Ferrante reward" on the memo line.

    Thanks for posting this, Okiegranny. I have a niece who graduated from Memorial. Wonderful high school.

    I thought originally that this crime would be completely and totally unrelated to this girl, and a completely random unassociated event.

    So sad. What a loss of a lovely young woman.
