Please Help Bury Murdered Victim Joanne Otero

Joanne Otero, a mother, daughter, sister, aunt and cousin to many; was brutally attacked and murdered on Christmas Eve on December 23rd 2019 in Madera, CA.
Joanne was a loving mother of six children: James Jr., Matea, Elias, Porcelain, Cyrus, and Envy Estrada. Shortly after giving birth to her last two children (fraternal twins) Joanne was diagnosed with postpartum depression. She faced many obstacles in life, made many attempts to get help, and unfortunately became consumed by the transient street life.
The unimaginable murder and brutality of her death during this Christmas holiday has left her family devastated and has greatly affected her children, who are heartbroken by this horrible crime and the permanent absence of their mother.
During this difficult time, we sincerely ask for your help for funeral expenses to bury Joanne Michelle Otero.
It is our prayer that Joanne can receive a decent burial in her home town of San Jose, CA. Transportation of Joanne to the City of San Jose and Burial costs are $19,000.
We have 3 weeks to raise the funds and bring Joanne back to her home town with her children.
We are thankful to the Madera Police Department for their relentless effort in the recent arrest of Joanne Otero’s killer.
We humbly appreciate any contribution.
