A Go Fund me account has been established to raise reward money for information about the murder of a South Dakota woman in Mid-Missouri.

Melissa Peskey, 40, of Sioux Falls, was driving on I-70 near Boonville last December when someone fired a shot into her car, killing her.

Peskey's two young children, who were in the back of the car, weren't injured.  

The trio were headed to South Carolina to visit friends.

As of this morning, The Go Fund me account created last week had raised almost $1,500 of a $10,000 reward goal.
