A memorial page, which was set up to raise money for the funeral for a teenager who was allegedly killed by his boyfriend in a violent domestic attack, has raised nearly $13,000.
Stephen Sylvester died after he was reportedly brutally attacked by his boyfriend Bryan Canchola after an argument about cheating. Canchola is now facing charges of murder in Texas, USA.
Although Stephen’s funeral was on the 24th July, a memorial fund is raising money for a memorial for the Austin teenager who died from a head injury.
The page, which was organised by Amy Dawn Robinson has raised $12,345 with donations from 236 people in just 9 days.
In his obituary, Stephen was described as someone who “arrived into this world the same way he lived, with as much spunk and glitter as any one person could handle.”
Canchola is in the Travis County Jail and his bail is set at $500,000
