WAYNESBORO, Va. - A nonprofit in Virginia created a fund to help return a murder victim's remains to her family in the Philippines. 

The Waynsboro Police Foundation hoped to raise $6,000 to cremate the remains of Karen Tait, 23, and fly them to her family.  According to a post on the organization's website, her family cannot afford the cost to do so.

Tait's body was found eleven years ago in the Greenbrier State Forest in West Virginia.  She wasn't listed as missing until 2011 and her body was identified a year later.  Her husband, Thomas Tait, has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and is serving a 30 year sentence on that charge.

You can donate to the fund through PayPal on the organization's website, or by mailing checks to:
