NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — More than $70,000 that was raised in honor of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims is now missing.
The charity’s founder said Friday that only $30,000 of the $103,000 donated was used for the foundation’s purpose.
The money was raised during marathons across the country, CBS 2 reported.
The founder noticed suspicious charges on a PayPal account, but when she questioned the co-founder, that person cut off contact.
The group has filed a complaint with the FBI.
