Minnesota woman's killing in Arizona still unsolved; reward increased to $10K

A reward for information about the homicide of a Minnesota woman in Arizona earlier this year has gone up to $10,000.

Allison Feldman, 31, was found dead in her suburban Phoenix home on Feb. 18. Court documents indicate she suffered serious head trauma.

Feldman, a 2001 Minnetonka High School graduate, earned a degree from the University of Arizona in 2005 and went on to work in sales for a medical device company.

It's been almost four months since Feldman was killed; no suspects have been named and no arrests have been made, and Scottsdale police hope the higher reward will encourage someone to come forward with information about the crime.

Police say they found a DNA sample of Feldman's killer in her home, and they believe the person lived in the area, according to the Arizona Republic.

The suspect apparently stole an iPhone 6, a Tiffany bracelet and credit cards from Feldman’s home, KSTP reports.

According to the court documents released in February, Feldman's body was found lying in a pool of blood, and first responders said she had “cranial trauma.” They also discovered a white substance around her body that smelled like bleach, the documents said.

Feldman’s boyfriend found her nude with a cloth wrapped around her head, and called 911. A surveillance camera from a nearby home confirmed the boyfriend’s account of his arrival at the residence.

Police have not said whether she was sexually assaulted or if there were signs of a struggle; there were no signs of forced entry, they said.

Allison's father Harley Feldman spoke with 12News several weeks ago, saying it's very difficult for him and his wife to return to Scottsdale, knowing their daughter isn't there anymore.

He also doesn't know why anyone would want to hurt his daughter.

"She had no enemies. Everybody loved her," he said. "Everything she did was 100 percent ... and we're really proud of her for that. She should be here."

Feldman's mother Elayne talked with ABC 15 earlier this week. She noted that Allison's birthday was Sunday; she would have turned 32 years old.

Elayne Feldman said some of Allison's friends and family gathered in her backyard over the weekend to mark the occasion, and called the event "uplifting," according to ABC 15.

“It was also very sad that, at such a young age she was not here for her birthday,” Elayne Feldman said. “I come here and I actually sit in her backyard and I find peace here.”

Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact the Silent Witness hotline at 480-948-6377.
