BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (WMBD) – a Bloomington mother has created a GoFundMe after her son was found dead in a church parking lot Monday.

According to the GoFundMe page, Talaina Matthews is hoping to raise $5,000 to help cover her son’s funeral cost.

 “A 20-year-old amazing young man had his life snatched away on Monday, February 20, 2023 before he even had a chance to live,” Matthews stated. “He was a beloved son, brother, and uncle but now he’ll never have the chance to be a father. He was a hard worker with a good spirit and a sense of humor that we will no longer get to enjoy.”

Keijoun Watts sustained a deadly gunshot wound Monday, according to a preliminary autopsy performed by McLean County Coroner.

McLean County Sheriff’s Deputies had been notified of unusual activity near Victory Church on Monday night. Watts was found unresponsive at the location.
