So says Joe Mammana. A statement that energized the discouraged onlookers of the Natalee Holloway case since last weekends release of all suspects by an Aruban Judge. In an interview with Rita Cosby on Thursday night, philanthropist, Joe Mammana, said the following that is assured to put a fire back in the case of missing teen Natalee Holloway:
Rita, one last thing. I just want the people of Aruba to know that Natalee Holloway’s mom, Beth Twitty and Joe Mammana are coming back to Aruba. Hell is coming with them, we did not forget Natalee Holloway.
Who is Joe Mammana? He has provided many of the recent missing persons cases with the monetary funds to create their rewards for information or safe return. Or as Mammana calls it, “Bounty Money“.
Joe Mammana says he hopes $50,000 will bring information about the disappearance of Julie Popovich, 20, of suburban Reynoldsburg, who has not been seen since leaving a bar near Ohio State University Aug. 11.
“Do rewards work? Sure, yes they do,” said Kevin Miles, president of Central Ohio Crime Stoppers, citing tips the organization received about Columbus-area highway shooter Charles McCoy after a reward was offered.
Mammana’s donation is the largest private contribution in the local program’s history, Miles said.
Popovich’s disappearance has garnered attention from 24-hour cable news networks.
Mammana said he learned Popovich disappeared from a report on Fox News. He also has offered rewards for information in cases of other missing people, including Alabama high school senior Natalee Holloway in Aruba and LaToyia Figueroa, a pregnant Philadelphia woman.
“I don’t call it reward money,” Mammana said. “I call it bounty money. I’m a vengeful person. I don’t believe in an eye for an eye; I believe in two for one.”
Joe Mammana has also contributed $100,000 reward for the missing 26 year old, nine months pregnant Amanda Jones. He played a major role in the $100,000 reward increase in the Latoyia Figueroa case. Mammana also gave $50,000 to the Julia Popovich reward as well.
Who is Joe Mammana? He has been described as a hard-boiled Sicilian businessman, a redeemed ex-con and millionaire chief executive of Yardley Farms and a self made success, who also has gained fame for posting rewards in criminal cases. Some like ‘The Number 2 Pencil’ like to refer to him as Philly’s Avenging Angel.
“These losers can kill each other and it would be a public service, a thinning of the herd,” said hard-boiled businessman Joe Mammana, putting a $10,000 “bounty” on “the heads” of the “cowards and thugs” who killed Faheem Thomas-Childs, 10, in a crossfire outside T.M. Peirce Elementary School…
For those who whine about the Natalee Holloway coverage only being about a pretty while blond girl, it would appear that Joe Mammana has covered all sides of the spectrum. To Jow its not about race, its about justice and finding the missing persons no matter who they may be.
What’s eating this obviously well-heeled suburban guy in the beautifully tailored jacket and slacks, the old-school fedora, the big-league jewelry and the imported Italian sports car that costs as much as a three-bedroom colonial on an acre of prime suburb? Why does he care so much about young, innocent inner-city murder victims?
I’m Sicilian,” he said. “My children are half Spanish. I don’t see color. I don’t see race. We’re all human beings. And we’re all subject to the streets. These bums who shoot children Ã¢â‚¬” I want them off the streets forever.”
Joe Mammana, coming soon to an Island called Aruba.
