TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Two funds have been set up to help cover the funeral expenses for a pair of Riley County teens who died in a crash early Sunday morning.

Kenni Cantu and Gaysha Alfred, both 14 years old, died in a crash along K-18. Three others were hurt.

Cantu’s sister, Madian Cantu Encarnacion, set up a GoFundMe for him. She wrote, “He was only 14 years old and had so much to live for, but we know he is in a better place now and watching over us.”

As of Tuesday morning, $11,975 of the fund’s $25,000 goal has been raised.

A second GoFundMe was also created Monday for Alfred. The organizer, Brittany Mansker, said Alfred was the oldest of six kids and the family is already struggling financially. She said the donations would help cover a cremation and memorial service for Alfred.
