ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  A local restaurant is pitching in to help the family of a three year old Albany girl who died last week.

An autopsy was conducted yesterday on three year old Camyria Arnold, but further toxicology tests must be done to determine her cause of death. Arnold's father is a utility worker at Logan's Roadhouse. They've helped the family set up a memorial fund to help with the unexpected funeral expenses.

"It was very tragic to hear about it to lose a young life and we definitely wanted to help out the family. Speaking to Booker and his family they told us they were having a hard time with the funeral arrangements and we wanted to definitely help out," said Cassandra Lane, Logan's Roadhouse General Manager.

Donations will be taken at the Colony Bank branches in Albany and Lee County. Arnold's father Booker Sims was working to get custody of the little girl at the time of her death. Her mother's boyfriend, 23 year old Rico Jones, is charged with reckless conduct in her death because he was smoking marijuana in her presence. Investigators won't say how she died.
