Loved ones raising money to fund Page Blvd. victim’s funeral cost

Hampden County

Friends are raising money for funeral costs for one of the victims found in that Page Boulevard home.

Friends of Kayla Escalante held a benefit car meet Thursday night to help raise money for funeral costs for the 27-year-old.

“Project Nemesis,” a local car club, set up the gathering. One of the organizers said Kayla use to attend their meet-ups. Members designed decals for the event in her honor.

A friend told 22News Kayla loved cars, and he was pleased the club took the time for this tribute.

“The first time that we met, I was actually part of a car club, and that’s how we met. She was a good girl, a really good, a smart girl. It’s so sad how she went,” said Angel Rivera.

Organizers said they pulled the event together in just a matter of days, and that plenty of cars and friends of Kayla came out to support.
