Surviving Children of Malissa Ynda

On Saturday,  April 10, 2021 Malissa Ynda of Riverside California was fatally shot and killed by her boyfriend and father of her 3 small children. He then turned the gun on himself, committing suicide. The 3 children 4, 6, and 8 years old were all home when this horrific murder/suicide took place. The oldest daughter bravely called the police and the they arrived the 2 youngest children were taken to safety and the oldest was soon rescued while the father barricaded himself inside the residence until swat entered and pronounced him dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The 3 children have been released into the care of Malissa's sister Crystal Queen.

We are trying to raise as much money as we can to donate to these children and their care.

Crystal Queen and her long term partner Jacob Perez are taking the necessary steps to obtain custody of the children to give them the best life they can possibly have. Without a second thought Crystal and Jacob took responsibility for these children, it was something Malissa and Crystal had discussed on several occasions "just in case anything happened", sadly.

This loss its so sudden and so tragic.

The children's home was destroyed and their belongings ruined during the standoff so they are left with next to nothing. We are all trying to do everything we can do for these poor children so they can get as much care and help that they desperately need. 

They need to be relocated into a larger home, repurchase practically everything they have ever owned and that wouldn't be possible without a village so we are asking for everyones help. Please find it in your hearts to donate to these children who tragically lost the most important and loving person in their life, right before their eyes. This is a complete tragedy. 

This will be life-changing for these kids and make life easier for the angels that are Crystal and Jacob for taking on the responsibility of these 3 amazing kids that will need extra TLC.

Please share this with your family and friends so we can make a difference in their lives!

On behalf of Malissa's entire family and all of those who loved her & her kids... 

We thank you for anything you can do to help!
