Thank you everyone for your generosity and heartfelt messages. Our family deeply appreciates your words of kindness and support during this time of grief. We would also like to take this opportunity to provide you with an update.
As some may have heard, Tommy’s autopsy and toxicology report has been released. Tommy had no alcohol or drugs in his body, and it was revealed that he was shot from behind, with six shots fired, two bullets went through his back and one to the wrist.
Our Family and Legal Representative had a press conference late last week to announce that we intend to file a lawsuit against the Sheriff’s Office. There are a number of articles out there covering this press conference.
With your help, we’ve exceeded our initial goal of raising funds to cover Tommy’s funeral expenses. The rest of the fund will be used to cover legal expenses that may arise during the long process. Should there be any funds left our hope is to donate the rest back to the community in honor of Tommy’s memory.
Though the road ahead may be a long one we’ll continue with hope of finding justice. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
We are truly grateful to receive support from caring and thoughtful family, friends, community, and even those in a different country.
With deepest appreciation,
