A grieving mother has set up a GoFundMe page to source funds for the funeral expenses of her late daughter who was shot to death by her boyfriend.
Alyson-Renee Johnson, the mother of a 27-year-old Georgia woman, Leilani Billingsley, who died last week Monday, has set up a GoFundMe to raise funds for her daughter's funeral expenses.
On the page, Johnson revealed her daughter was murdered by her boyfriend, adding that her family did not expect the occurrence. She further advised parents to help their daughters if they are in a bad situation.

Johnson said she feels like she failed Billingsley. She explained that her life is upside down at the moment and described her daughter as her best friend and rock. She also said Billingsley taught her what being a mother was all about.
Billingsley, a mother to a six-year-old daughter, met her untimely death at the hands of her boyfriend. According to the police, the incident occurred at Riverside EpiCenter's rear parking lot.
According to eyewitnesses and video evidence, Billingsley's boyfriend, Paul Sullivan, 38, physically assaulted her. Afterward, he shot her before shooting himself. Their bodies were found in the parking lot.
Following an investigation, they determined Smith shot Brice multiple times.
Johnson said she never believed Sullivan would hurt her daughter. She said they argued a lot, but it never went past that. The tragic incident adds to the multiple cases of shootings going on in the country lately.
In April, police issued an arrest warrant for a man who allegedly killed his pregnant girlfriend before putting her body in a car and burning it with his friend's help.
The victim, Dianna Brice, 21, was reported missing and was last seen entering a car with her boyfriend, Justin Smith, 23. Brice told her mother about her whereabouts twice before meeting her untimely death.
When Brice's mother could no longer reach her, she called Smith, who told her they argued, and she took off on foot. Police swung into action and tracked Brice and Smith's car.
They found the car on fire and also saw the body. Following an investigation, they determined Smith shot Brice multiple times in her head, killing her.
His female friend, Tylydiah Garnett, helped him buy gasoline with which they set the car ablaze. Garnett has since been arrested and is facing multiple charges while authorities continue to search for Smith.
Similarly, in February, a Central Texas man shot his wife to death before shooting himself. Luckily, the couple's three kids who were in the residence were unharmed.
