Memorial fund set up for family of Isaiah Theis


WCCO reports that a memorial fund has been set up for the family of Isaiah Theis to help pay for the 2-year-old Wisconsin boy's funeral expenses.

The Isaiah Theis Memorial Fund is on the YouCaring memorial fund website. Those who set up the fund hope to raise $20,000.

The toddler's body was found in a car trunk after he’d been missing for more than a day. Thousands of searchers joined the effort to find the boy after he went missing near his home in Centuria, Wis. According to preliminary reports, Isaiah died of hyperthermia. The Theis family pastor has said the keys to the car were found in the trunk with Isaiah.

The memorial site says, "Isaiah was a sweet and adventurous two year old boy. He had a natural curiosity and liked to explore the world around him to discover new things. Unfortunately, his curious nature let to his tragic passing. The Theis family thanks you for your thoughts, prayers and generous contributions in this time of need."
