Local news state that the two had dated after meeting in school and also worked together at a nursing home in Oak Lawn earlier this year.

Jaliene’s sister Ashley Flores has established a GoFundMe campaign to help with funeral expenses.

“This turned fatal and on July 13th at 9am he ended my sister’s life on what we thought would be another normal Thursday,” she continues. “I sit here still waiting for her to come home. Unfortunately my family and I must accept that Jailene is no longer with us and is in heaven watching above us all.”
