Fundraiser pays for funeral expenses of Eastwood teen
A GoFundMe page has been started for the funeral expenses of a Pemberville teenager killed last week.
Cierra McCrory was reportedly shot to death by Lukas Miller, 19, of Clay Township, Michigan, on Thursday.

Initial investigations are ruling the incident a murder/suicide, with Miller shooting McCrory, who was a
junior at Eastwood High School, then turning the gun on himself.
Eastwood Superintendent Brent Welker, in a letter to the community, asked to keep the family in its
thoughts and prayers.
“It remains difficult to understand the events from Thursday. A young life was lost in a senseless act of
violence that most of us associate with distant places on the news. The community mourns the loss of
Cierra McCrory and looks for ways to help the family during this difficult time,” Welker wrote.
