Melissa Ortega was killed earlier today. Melissa was 8 years old and a resident of Little Village and attended Emiliano Zapata Academy. She and her mother immigrated from Mexico this past August. They were both excited to start a new life in Chicago and build their American Dream. I was honored to have met Melissa and will always remember her beautiful smile.
I am asking that you please help fund her funeral expenses. She will be buried in her home town, Los Sauces, Tabasco, Zacatecas, Mexico.
Thank you all for your generosity and prayers.
This GoFundMe is on behalf of Araceli Leaños Solís, mother of Melissa Ortega.
