    A scholarship fund has been created in honor of a 14-year-old girl who was murdered in her Indian Head Park home last week.

    The Kelli Joy O'Laughlin Memorial Fund will keep the memory of the teen alive through future educational opportunities for other young people, her family said in a statement.

    Kelli O'Laughlin was stabbed to death after she apparently walked into a burglary after school, police said.

    The scholarship fund is in the form of a donor-advised fund facilitated by the Chicago Community Trust.

    Online donations can be made at www.KelliJoyOlaughlinMemorialFund.com. Checks can also be made payable to "The Chicago Community Foundation," noting "The Kelli Joy O'Laughlin Memorial Fund" in the memo line, and sent to:
