Scholarship Fund Created in Honor of Slain Teen

Kelli O'Laughlin

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.
