We Remember Philly Native and NHI Murder Victim Donna Marie Gentile: 1962-1985

“[Donna] was either killed because she was a part of a series of prostitute murders that had been happening in the 1980s, or the fact that she was informing on the San Diego Police Department,” said Limberg, who lectures at Cal State San Marcos and Palomar College….
