Home Runs Hit for Daughter of Slain Woman

Fundraiser held in memory of Carlsbad woman Kathy Scharbarth



    A unique fundraiser was held Saturday to benefit the daughter of a Carlsbad woman killed over the Thanksgiving holiday.

    Kathy Scharbarth was kidnapped on Thanksgiving Day and her body was found the next day. Police arrested her ex-boyfriend Michael Robles, who she had filed a restraining order against only days before her murder.

    Scharbarth's brother is a baseball hitting instructor at the Frozen Rope batting cages in Encinitas. Saturday all customers got to hit for free, but were asked to leave a donation.

    Donations will go toward the “benefit and future” of Scharbarth’s 13-year-old daughter, who she left behind, the batting cage’s owner said.
