Mayor Bill de Blasio's office has added $10,000 to the reward being offered for information about the death of a Queens jogger earlier this month.

Karina Vetrano's body was foundbrutally murdered and sexually assaulted in Spring Creek Park in Howard Beach, Queens, on Aug. 2. She had left her home to go for a run.

Since then, a GoFundMe campaign was created by Vetrano's family to raise reward funds, which has culled more than $264,000 over a two-week span.

On Tuesday, the Mayor's office announced its additional funds, CBS New York reported. Combined with $35,000 offered by the NYPD and the GoFundMecampaign, the total reward for information is nearly $300,000.

Last week, Vetrano's father Philip Vetrano said it was "a matter of days" before his daughter's killer was caught.
