GARDENDALE - The family of a young mother found murdered in Ector County is welcoming the public out to the funeral of 22-year-old Alexandra Kennedy at 1 p.m. on Friday afternoon at the Acres West Funeral Chapel in West Odessa. 

Kennedy's mother, Tiffany Gough says, there will be a funeral procession that is different than most.   

"Family stands behind family. That's what its always been. Even though not all of them were her brothers, she called them her little brothers. For the boys to pull up in their trucks with their flags, they were there for her to rescue her. They would pick her up and get her things. Bring her home to safety," Gough said.

There was a previous incident involving Kennedy. Her brother and friends started this rescue technique known as the redneck convoy to go rescue her.

"She would say, I need to gather the convoy, I need to gather the redneck convoy to back me up on this," Gough said.

Gough is inviting the public to take part in the procession as they make their way over to the Ector County Cemetery. She asks, that if anyone wants to join, to be respectful and know it's for Kennedy. The convoy is also for those out there dealing with domestic violence.

"We want others to know that we're not going to let this die out. She's no longer with us. This was not the way she needed to go. We're not going to let it die out. Other women and men need to know that there is help out there. Just don't be afraid to take the help," Gough said.

The family has set up a bank account at Chase Bank and is asking for donations for Alexandra's children. The account number is 445544518 or use Alexandra Kennedy's name.
