“We need to make sure we get this killer off the streets,” Gonzalez said. Jazmine’s family is also encouraging the public to share anything they know. “I just want anybody, whoever, out there that knows anything about the murder of my daughter, to just please step up as if it was your own,” Christopher Cevilla, Jazmine’s father, said on Monday, according to CNN. “Just put yourself in my shoes, in my family’s shoes.” The family has started a GoFundMe campaign to help with expenses during this time. That campaign has raised $11,849, almost double the original goal of $6,500 in a mere two days. Activists alike have also joined the search, with journalist Shaun King, alongside civil rights attorney Lee Merrit, both of whom have come together to offer a $35,000 reward for anyone who can turn in the shooter.
