SAN BERNARDINO (CBSLA.com) — A Domino’s Pizza in San Bernardino held a fundraiser Wednesday in honor of a manager who was killed at the restaurant.
All of the day’s proceeds will go to a memorial fund for Nelly Kantun, who was murdered Feb. 12 in the 1600 block of East Highland Avenue.
Police said the 39-year-old and Pedro Enrique Duquesne, believed to be her ex-boyfriend, got into an argument before he pulled out a handgun and shot her several times.
KCAL9’s Crystal Cruz reports that dozens of people could be seen coming and going with pizzas on Wednesday night, all for the beloved single mother of three who had worked there for 20 years.
“As you can see, she was loved by many,” the victim’s sister, Daniela Busald, said. “We all love her. She’ll always be in our hearts and our memories.”
Volunteers wore red shirts with Kantun’s picture on them, hoping to raise $10,000 from donations and pizza sales. They accomplished that goal, Cruz reported.
Fred and Beth Steig got to know Kantun over the years from buying pizzas.
“She made the best pizzas. She was just a delightful lady,” Fred said.
