Remembering Chelsea King


Chelsea King - Poway High School SeniorI was going to write a post with information on the search efforts of Chelsea King but unfortunately it appears that our greatest fears were realized this afternoon when authorities identified a body found as Chelsea King. For those of you who don’t know, she is a Poway high school student who has been missing since last Thursday.

As I write this post I am really at a loss for words. I don’t have any children yet and still can’t even imagine how difficult this must be for the family.

There is a candlelight vigil at St. Michael Catholic Church for friends and family scheduled for tonight at 7 p.m.  It was planned previous to Chelsea’s body being found and it’s unclear if it will still take place.

I will post updated information as soon as it becomes available.  I would like to make a donation on behalf of one of our office football pool players. She asked that I donate her winnings to the family of Chelsea King. I am unaware of any fund at this point but as soon as I find something I will add it to this post and also make sure that we make the donation to the family on Chelsea’s behalf.

Here is a link to the Facebook page setup for Chelsea King.

UPDATE: 03-05-10

Chelsea’s family has set up the Chelsea’s Light Fund. People have asked about making donations and you can now make a donation to the Chelsea Light Fund at any Wells Fargo Bank. (Account #1838355913. Here is a link to the Facebook page for Chelsea’s Light Fund.

  1. Awful news…such a pretty face and eyes. I don’t live in the area, but I am assuming foul play was involved. My prayers go out to her family!

  2. Yeah, it really stinks. She went for a run at a local park close to where she lives. She was reportedly raped and murdered. The scumbag is in custody, he has pleaded not guilty and the Sheriff confirmed that his DNA was found on her body. It’s just such a waste, it’s so close to where I grew up and where my dad currently lives. She went to Poway High School which was always one of our rivals, I went to Torrey Pines High School.

    Really stinks and I just thought I would write a quick post, I can’t imagine how difficult it must be for the family.

  4. Condolence to the family. Such a young and beautiful girl.
