TAYLOR, Mich. (WJBK) - A restaurant in Taylor was packed Tuesday evening during a fundraiser for the family of Chelsea Small, the employee who was found murdered in November at a check cashing store in Taylor.

Pia's Ristorante Italiano donated 20 percent of diners' bills to college funds for Small's children, who were five and eight years old when she was killed.

Police say Small was killed during a robbery at the Advance America on Telegraph Road near Champaign Street. They have released surveillance photos showing the suspect, hoping the public can help identify the man.

He is described as a white male aged between 35 and 50 years old. He is approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall with a stock build, and has shoulder length brown hair. He walks with a slouch. He was wearing a white T-shirt, dark jacket and dark-colored pants the day of the robbery.

Crime Stoppers of Michigan is offering a cash reward in exchange for information that leads to an arrest. Call 1-800-SPEAK-UP (1-800-773-2587) if you have that information. You will remain anonymous. You can also leave a tip online at

Another fundraiser is said to be in the works for summer. In the meantime, anyone can donate to the Chelsea Small Memorial Fund which is accessible at any Fifth Third Bank.
