Crimestoppers decided Friday to give reward money to the woman who found Brogan Dulle's body in the building next to his apartment.

Crimestoppers decided to give Mariam Martinez $2,500 for her help in finding the missing University of Cincinnati student.

Martinez made the 911 call to police on May 26 after she thought an intruder was in the basement of her building.

Her call led to the discovery of Dulle's body.

Officials say the total reward money amounted to $30,000. It is unknown at this time where the rest of that money is going. Jeff Ruby and UC President Santa Ono contributed money to the reward.

Jeff Ruby said his $7,500 reward would be put toward a scholarship fund for Dulle's brother, Tim Dulle, who plans to attend UC.  He also donated $2,500 in Martinez's name to the charity Institute of Youth Development and Excellence.

Dulle's story made national headlines after he went missing on May 18. He was last seen around 2 a.m. when he left his apartment, telling his roommates he was going out to look for his misplaced cell phone. Over the following week an extensive search for him ensued on foot and social media.
