MOLINE, Ill. — A GoFundMe page has popped up for a man serving a 45-year prison sentence in the 2005 murder of Adrianne Reynolds.
Cory Gregory pleaded guilty in 2006. His co-defendant Sarah Kolb was also convicted for murdering their 16-year old classmate by strangling her outside a Taco Bell in Moline. Gregory and Kolb later burned and dismembered her body.
A GoFundMe page, created Tuesday for Gregory, now asks for donations to help him write a book. The description reads in part:
Reynold's step-mother, Joanna Reynolds, said this is just another daily reminder of what happened.
"She'll never be able to tell her story," Reynolds said.
"It's something we think about - everyday we think about our lives, about what he did to her. It's just something that has not gone away... I'm begging the community please don't donate to it. To respect Adrianne. I'm just begging please don't do this. Respect Adrianne's wishes."
As of April 26th, the page has raised $5 of it's $3,000 goal.
