LINTON, Ind. (WTHI) - A community is coming together after a Linton teenager was found dead.
Police found the body of Katelyn Wolfe, 19, Monday evening. She had been missing since last week.
The family has expressed a need for help in covering her funeral expenses. Now, the community has sprung into action.
A local coffee shop, Francisco De Borja, in Linton is selling some of Katelyn's father, Eric Wolfe's artwork. The proceeds will go toward funeral costs.
"It's just touched everybody because you know when somebody takes away your child, no matter if she's a 19 year old woman, it's still your child," manager, Denise York told News 10.
At this time, pricing has not been set for each piece. If you'd like to find out more about the artwork, you can call the coffee shop. That number is (812) 847-3100
Meanwhile, even kids are doing what they can to help.
News 10 caught up with Tyler Vivian. He's a 9-year-old who decided to help the family by selling lemonade.
He doesn't know Katelyn Wolfe personally, and he doesn't know the details of the case, but he just wants to help.
"It's a really good cause for the family, because I'm going to work with my mom just told me they didn't have enough money for it," Vivian said.
His mother said Tyler has done all the work. She oversaw his efforts at the State Farm Insurance building in Linton's downtown.
So far, he's collected nearly $400 for the family. He plans to be out again on Thursday.
The Wolfe family has told News 10 that they are grateful for all the support they've received during this difficult time.
If you would like to donate, you can do so in Katelyn Wolfe's name at any Regions banking location.
