In January of 2006, Guadalupe Barajas, was murdered by her boyfriend in their apartment. Her daughter Andrea, 4 years old, woke up to find her mother's body. She then bravely fed and took care of her younger sisters, Lizbeth, 3, and Alexandra, 20 months, for 16 hours, until family members came to investigate why they had not heard from their mother. The Victims' Assistance Program collected in excess of $49,000 in donations for the three young girls. Their grandparents, who are now raising them, have put this money into a fund for their college education.
