This gofundme is being ran by Derrick's roommates, Pablo Llamas, Joseph Torres, and Melanie Baeza. We live in El Centro, CA 92243. We lived with him for the last year. Derrick Thornton is a close friend of ours. All funds will be given to Derrick's family (his mom, Debbie Thornton and his cousin, Teralyn Cobb), which will take care of the funeral services and anything else his family needs. She receives all this money through her email. We will be having a benefit concert and other fundraisers. More information will be posted soon.
