It happened in the 3800 block of Vernon Ave., where the family said her attacker was going to move out but he returned home, police said.

“My team and I are devastated at the loss of Sierra Howard,” said Jason Shifflett, Domino’s franchise owner in Memphis. “Our hearts are breaking for all who knew and loved Sierra, and we invite the community to join us this week to help support her family as they go through this difficult time.”

Howard worked at the Domino’s on Highland near the University of Memphis. To help offset sudden the costs, Domino’s is giving 25 percent of sales from that store Monday through Friday of this week to her family.

To place an order to benefit Sierra Howard’s family, customers can call the Domino’s store, located at 550 S. Highland Street, at 901-323-3030 or go to dominos.com to order online.

The local franchisee has also established a fund at Renasant Bank to benefit the family during this difficult time. All Renasant Bank locations can accept donations. They have also set up a GoFundMe account.
