A crowdfunding page has been set up to support the mother of a seven-year-old girl who was found dead in a northeastern Saskatchewan home.
Police had issued an Amber Alert for Nia Eastman on Thursday after she was not returned to her mother the night before.
Nia’s father was found dead in a rural area from self-inflicted injuries.
Hours later Nia’s body was discovered in a house in the small community of Choiceland.
Melinda Fleming writes on a GoFundMe page that she wants to support Nia’s mother, Crystal Eastman, during a tragic time.
Fleming says her children loved going over to play with Nia, who she says was sweet, talented, beautiful and who had a smile that could light up a room.
RCMP say they are trying to piece together what happened after Nia’s father, Adam Jay Eastman, picked her up from school on Wednesday.
