The following was posted on a GoFundMe Page that is now making the rounds on social media:

Aleli Avila was a free spirit in this world. People knew her as Lily, Blue, and Kitty. She loved her family fiercely. She would do anything for her family and friends. She was a loving single mother, who tried to do the best that she could. She is survived by wonderful children. Vikki, a Staff Sergeant in the US Army, who served two tours in Afghanistan. Aleli’s adopted daughter, Roxy, who also served two tours in Afghanistan, in the United States Army. Vivi, who is presently working as a City employee in Southern California. And Christopher, who is currently serving his country as a Corporal in the United States Marine Corps.

On August 23, 2017, her body was found dumped on the side of a dirt road on Camino Diablo in Byron, Contra Costa County, on the property of a sand mine.

The search is now on for her killer.

Her children have and are still serving the country. Please help them find their mother’s killer(s). We are offering a $5000 reward for helping the Sheriff’s Department to find her killer(s). There is also a GoFund Page Justice for Aleli Avila, please donate.

This may be a fake go fund me. I have seen many posts that it is and the owner of it seems to not be related and also is blocking anyone who asks questions about it

Please retract this article! You need to verify funds and person collecting the reward money. It’s a scam!!

Hello Mandi: In my line of work, I’m on social media everyday, in regards to business. I run into many cases where articles are spam or suspicious to scam. I can tell you right now, that this is not a scam. My mother was a victim of a violent crime, an investigation that is still on going. As her daughter, this is a very sensitive issue for me, as it is for my brother and sister, and the rest of our family and those that loved my mother. Please don’t hurt the chances of a witness or someone with more information coming forward. Thank you for having our best interest at heart.

I tried clicking on the gofundme through the Patch, and it was “not found.” I’ve never gotten a “not found” message when clicking on gofundme. It was probably taken down. she does look kind of sketchy. Wow.
