Family of Falls homicide victim launches GoFundMe account

Apr. 4—A GoFundMe has been started to support the family of Tania Wilson, the single mother of four who was found stabbed to death on Sunday inside a house on Orleans Avenue in the City of Niagara Falls.

The description on the account describes the 32-year-old victim of the city's first homicide of 2024 as "beloved" and as someone who was "taken" by a "senseless act of violence."

"Tania leaves behind 4 beautiful minor children who are now facing an unimaginable loss," the description on the GoFundMe account reads. "In the wake of this heartbreaking tragedy, we are rallying together to provide support for Tanias's family during this incredibly difficult time."

Wilson's body was found by police patrol officers who were dispatched to a home on the 2400 block of Orleans Avenue about 11 p.m. Sunday on a report of a possible domestic incident.

When officers arrived at the home, they found four children, ranging in age from early teens to toddlers, along with Wilson's body. Investigators said Wilson suffered multiple stab wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Detectives later arrested a suspect in the case, 32-year-old Keith William Hill of Buffalo, who was charged with second-degree murder. Hill has pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Wilson's friends and family members are looking to raise $20,000, with organizers saying the bulk of the funds would be used to bring her brother and sister to America from Germany so they can help make funeral arrangements and provide emotional support to her children.

"We understand that no amount of money can ease the pain of this loss, but by coming together as a community, we can alleviate some of the financial burden and show our unwavering support for the family during this tragic time," the GoFundMe account reads.
