A GoFundMe Taylor McAllister memorial fund site has been set up by paramedic Andrew Harriman of Tampa. Harriman says on the site: “The oldest daughter of my very dear friend, and fellow paramedic, was found murdered this morning. She was 22 years old and had her entire life ahead of her. She leaves behind two children, both of whom are toddlers. I’ve set this page up to help her family with funeral costs and any immediate needs that the twins might have. Thank you in advance for any help that you can provide.”
