GoFundMe established for homicide victim

A family member of homicide victim Samantha Cisneros has started a GoFundMe page to help with expenses associated with her death and injuries to her 5-year-old daughter.

Cisneros and Taryn Allen, both 23 of Texico, were killed Friday at Ned Houk Park north of Clovis. Cisneros' 5-year-old daughter was critically injured in the attack and her infant daughter, Eleia Maria Torres, is missing.

Police believe the unknown killer has taken the baby.

The GoFundMe page can be found at:

Organized by Cisneros' Aunt Pamula Lerma, It reads:

"My niece, Samantha Harley Cisneros, was one of the victims at the Ned Houk Park on May 3, 2024. As a family we are left dealing with the tragic death of Samantha, her 5 yr old daughter fighting for her life and the search for her 10 month old baby girl. Harley was a devoted mother to those 2 little girls of hers. Please anything helps."

The fundraising goal was set at $20,000. At 12:30 p.m. Sunday, $220 had been donated.
