Reiff’s badly decomposed body was found in June in the woods near the Lakeview Apartment complex in Gloucester Township where she lived. Authorities have yet to rule on a cause of death, and will only say that it is being investigated as a homicide.

The reward for information leading to the person responsible has been increased from $1,000 to $20,000.  Reiff’s employer, Admiral Insurance, donated nearly $9,000. The rest was raised by the South Jersey community where Reiff lived.

“We are so very appreciative of the ability to continue to be progressive and proactive. The community has overwhelmed us with their generosity,” said Centanni. “We’re hoping that in raising this reward, it may get someone’s attention and help someone come forward with information that they may not even realize they have that can us solve this mystery.”

“I think in a situation like this, whether it’s solved quickly or it takes a long time, it’s difficult. I can’t say that our difficulty is more than anyone else’s,” said Centanni. “We are mourning and we are hopeful for a resolution. When that resolution comes, we will be thankful for it, if it’s tomorrow or in a year.”

In the meantime, Centanni is holding onto the memories she has of her mother.

“I was an only child for many years and we were extremely close. She was a woman with a huge heart and an inspiration. It has been very difficult over this past month to take part in activities. She was always with us and it is incredibly hard doing those things without her.”

Authorities are urging anyone who may have seen anything to come forward.

“Often, people witness activity that they may not think is suspicious and the same situation could be the case here, so it’s very important that people report anything and everything to us,” said Harry Earle, Chief of the Gloucester Township Police Department.
