ORLANDO -- (WKMG) -- Four children ages 1 to 12 were found dead Monday after a nearly 24-hour standoff in Orlando.
The children were identified Tuesday as Iraya Lopez, 12; Lillia Lopez, 10; Aidan Lindsey, 6; and Dove Lindsey, 1.
A family friend who is an attorney contacted News 6 after creating a GoFundMe page for the family to help pay for the children's burial expenses.
"We are raising money for Ciara who lost her four beautiful children on June 11. Her boyfriend was the father of two of the children and selfishly took the lives of these precious innocent angels and then took his own life. These beautiful babies never hurt anyone. Ciara lost her children Iraya, age 12, Lillia, age 10, Aidan, age 6, and beautiful little Dove, ages 1 year old. It is a tragic ending to a night of horror. As a representative of the family, I am assisting the immediate family in putting together this fund for funeral expenses for the four children and helping Ciara get on her feet," the GoFundMe page said.
The family attorney, Walter Benenati, said Irayan loved to play video games and was an overachiever at school.
Lillia, who attended Sadler Elementary School, enjoyed going to Disney World and Volcano Bay.
Aidan, who also attended Sadler Elementary, loved dinosaurs and playing outside.
And Dove, who was 22 months old, simply enjoyed running and playing outside.
Orlando police Chief John Mina said Gary Lindsey Jr., shot and killed the children before taking his own life.
