ALTON - A local woman has organized a GoFundMe fundraiser for the late Ryan Heinlein's daughter, Tillie, his significant other, Elizabeth, and their other child Tatum.

Ryan died in a tragic traffic accident at Barrack Obama Avenue and Interstate 64/55 eastbound in St. Clair County on Dec. 5, 2021. Tillie, his 10-year-old daughter, was injured and transported from the crash scene to an area hospital. She, however, is thankfully expected to make a full recovery.
