It was a crime that not only shocked the community, but brought it together.
Genelle Conway Allen, 13, was found murdered in Fairfield’s Alan Witt park on February 1.
A week later, Anthony Jones would be arrested for the crime. His first court appearance was last week, but was delayed until February 21.
That same day Conway Allen will be laid to rest.
While the funeral is moving ahead it doesn’t change that fact it’s expensive. To help with costs a fund has been set up on the website “Go Fund Me” to collect donations for the burial.
They are still thousands of dollars away from their goal of $10,000 but as the site says every little bit helps.
