Missing Person’s Families Meet With Benefactor, Joe Mammana

Posted in: Aruba,Beth Holloway,Crime,Joe Mammana,Missing Persons,Natalee Holloway

Several families met with Joe Mammana, the man who offered his help in their time of Mammananeed. Joe Mammana has come to the aide of many missing persons families by offering large rewards in hopes that it may lead to some form of information being brought forward to solve the investigations.

Those families met Joe Mammana, a Philadelphia man who first made headlines by posting a $100,000 reward in the Natalee Holloway case, where the college student was reported missing in Aruba.

Since then, Mammana has made the same generous offer in local cases,Ashlee Howley including the disappearances of Julie Popovich, Tony Luzio Jr., Michelle Hadsell and Carla Losey. Now, he’s offered an increased reward in the 1996 disappearance of Rob Mohney.

Joe Mammana is in town as a keynote speaker for the annual Crime Stoppers breakfast, which will be held Wednesday morning.

In wanting to make a difference Joe Mammana has offered what he feels is his best way to make a difference in missing person’s cases. It has brought together many unlikely people including Beth Twitty, the families of several missing persons and Joe Mammana.

The same was said for Beth Twitty, the mother of Natalee Holloway. Twitty Natalee Hollowayand Mammana were at the meeting to bring important messages to Central Ohioans.

“We share something in common now, that I never, never would have thought that we would have, so that’s pretty huge,” Twitty said.

“So many people want to do things, but they don’t know what to do,” Mammana said. “Some people pray, some people picket, protest. They’re all good, but I needed to do more.”

The families of eight missing adults met to support each other and to thank Mammana for putting his cash on the line as reward money in more than 100 cases nationwide.

As Joe Mammana believes that the generosity provides hope for the families and the largePopovich rewards can cause those individual who would not normally come forward to possibly do so.

“Forget $2,500 rewards. Forget $5,000 rewards. When you start throwing a $100,000 reward out there, mothers turn against sons, fathers turn against brothers. It changes the whole scope of everything,” Mammana said.

Mammana’s generosity gives the families hope that they’ll find answers about their loved ones. Twitty was in Columbus for that reason and to tell her daughter’s story to young adults in Central Ohio.
