Fund Mirna's Journey Home for Final Rest

Donation protected
Mirna Soza Arauz, my beloved aunt, mother of three, and grandmother of seven, tragically passed away the morning of April 22, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, shortly after being viciously attacked on the commute home after work on the Metro train at Universal City station.

We have more questions than answers at this point. The suspect is in custody and charged with murder. While we await justice for our aunt, our biggest priority is giving her a proper burial at home in Nicaragua. All funds raised will go directly to funeral expenses, including the cost of transporting her remains from the U.S. to Nicaragua which we anticipate being the biggest hardship on the immediate family. I will be using the funds raised for the expenses that need to be taken care of in the United States, and any remaining amount will be wired to Mirna‘s daughters in Nicaragua, Mirna José Román Soza and Nadia Cisne Soza.

While we appreciate the first responders that tried to save her life, we hope that Mirna’s death does not go unnoticed, and results in real change to the public safety efforts in the area. It’s a tragedy for the immigrant community of Los Angeles and for all that rely on the Metro to get home safe. We will not rest until justice is served.

Decanse en paz Tía Mirna.
