Vernecia Woodard Killed by COP

Hello my name is Tashara Gilyard. I am a resident of NYC but have just experienced a MAJOR tragedy in my family. I received a call on Monday, August 25th that my baby sister Vernecia Woodard, whom we had been looking for since Friday August 22nd, had been found dead. I have started this page due to Vernecia Woodard who was 26yrs old and murdered at the hands of Tahreem Zeus Rana an Atlanta Police Officer. This officer shot Neci 7 times and set her on fire. With no consideration to who she maybe leaving behind. Our handicap mother is now left to take care of her motherless and fatherless 8yr old grandchild, who has been asking, why my mom? Your donations will be going towards helping to raise her 8yr old baby girl Zaniyya Woodard who was robbed of her mother at the hands of someone who was supposed to protect and serve. All donations would be helping in not only Zaniyya but the memorial cost for Vernecia. After Vernecia's homegoing we will still need to get Zaniyya essentials for school.

Due to this tragedy Zaniyya is now going to be raised by her grandmother who will need financial assistance in raising her. While we know this gofundme account will not see her through life and pay for her future and college, it will be a start. These contributions will help the family not add any other voids for Zaniyya such as, loosing out on necessities due to the financial obligations the family is now facing in burrying their baby girl (daughter), baby sister and mother (ONLY PARENT).

I being part of the immediate family have participated in setting up a memorial account for Zaniyya, so I will be sending all funds directly into this account.

we thank you all in advance...
