Fraudlent Fundraising for Jessica Heeringa

Two women from the Muskegon area are in jail for falsely fundraising for Jessica Heeringa. 

According to mLive, police say the women were standing outside of a Wal-Mart in Roosevelt Park, in May, attempting to collect money from people. The women claimed it was to help send Heeringa's 3-year-old son to Chuck E. Cheese's. 56-year-old, Joann Vaughn, was sentenced to 45 days in jail for larceny by false pretenses and 56-year-old, Susan Louise Adams, was given 93 days in jail. Currently, there are only two legit fundraisers for Heeringa, the Muskegon County Silent Observer - Jessica Heeringa Reward and the Jessica Heeringa Family Fund. There is a $15,000 reward for anyone with information. Anyone with tips is asked to contact the Silent Observer at 231-72-CRIME or the Norton Shores Police Department.
