Lillian and her father, 38-year-old Ryan Fuglie, drowned off Park Point last Thursday. Lillian's mother, Maggie Wacker-Fritze, said Lillian, her 12-year-old sister, and Ryan were on a camping trip to the Duluth area.

A group called "Backing the Blue Line Police Wives MN" has set up an online fundraiser for Lillian's mother. They had raised more than $3,000 as of Wednesday afternoon, with a goal of $10,000.
