Reward offered in Brooklyn murder

12G for tips in teen’s slay:

A reward is being offered for information in the murder of Chanel Petro-Nixon

Cops are offering a $12,000 reward in last week’s shocking murder of a promising 16-year-old Brooklyn girl.

Chanel Petro-Nixon was last seen on June 18 when she left her apartment on Fulton St. to fill out a job application at an Applebee’s only a few blocks away. She never made it there and was reported missing.

Chanel’s body was found last Thursday, strangled and stuffed in a garbage bag on Kingston Ave. in Crown Heights.

A straight-A 10th-grader at Boys and Girls High School, Chanel was a devoted Seventh-Day Adventist. Cops are examining her MySpace page for clues.

Family members were stunned that the talented girl could be plucked from the bustling commercial strip without anyone noticing.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.

Hopefully, someone will give police the information needed to bring her killer to justice.

  1. Several years ago I remember reading about similiar murders by strangulation. Young people were using strangulation for sexual stimulation. It’s a longshot however, I do believe all avenues must be looked into in an effort to locate the person or persons responsible for this crime.
