February 6, 1987

ORANGE, Calif. (AP) _ A father whose 14-year-old daughter was kidnapped, raped and strangled has offered a reward for help in finding the killer.

″We must put him in a place where he will no longer be able to inflict the terrible wound he’s given to us and our daughter,″ Jack Osborn said in a news conference Thursday at the Adam Wash Child Resource Center.

Wendy Rachelle Osborn disappeared Jan. 20 while on her way to school in Placentia. Her body was found Feb. 1 in the Chino Hills about 30 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles.

Osborn did not specify the amount of the reward. Janet Keenan, a spokeswoman for the center, said $400 has been raised and pledges of up to $15,000 have been received.

The non-profit Adam Walsh center helps child victims of crime, particularly missing youngsters, Miss Keenan said.
