HAMMOND, Ind. (AP) - The family of a woman found strangled in Indiana is trying to raise money to have her remains returned to Colorado.

Nineteen-year-old Afrikka Hardy was found strangled in a bathtub at a Motel 6 in Hammond on Friday. Police say 43-year-old Darren Vann has confessed in her slaying and led them to the bodies of six other women in abandoned buildings in nearby Gary.

Mary Miller tells The Times in Munster (https://bit.ly/1tf09z1 ) that her niece moved to Aurora, Colorado, in 2008. She says Hardy’s mother has lost her job since her daughter’s death and does not have the resources to pay to cremate Hardy’s body and ship the remains to Colorado.

Friends have established a GoFundMe page to raise money to cover the costs.
