Leo Rocha-Miranda, 21, was killed in a car crash Friday morning after his vehicle hit a GRTC Pulse bus stop near Allison Street.
The VCU student was a member of the university’s Delta Chi chapter and joined the fraternity in the fall. He was part of the fall 2019 Beta Kappa class.
A candlelit vigil was held for the junior, who was a criminal justice major with a forensic science minor, on Sunday to celebrate his life and “legacy left behind.”
137 donors have raised more than $5,000 dollars for Rocha-Miranda’s family on a GoFundMe. The fundraiser was organized by Delta Chi’s chapter president Sean Lutz, who said on the fundraiser’s page that Leo was a “selfless, stand-up guy.”
“Leo never hesitated to help others and always encouraged people to be the best version of themselves,” Lutz wrote.
Lutz did not respond to requests for further comment.
