Thousands Support Lone Survivor After Her Family Is Killed in Spring, TX
After her family was killed execution style last Wednesday near Houston, people are coming out in droves to help the 15-year old sole survivor.
Cassidy Stay's parents and four siblings were killed in the shootings at their home, but Cassidy survived after a bullet grazed her head and she played dead until the violence ended. Now almost $300,000 has been raised for her benefit, as she starts her new life without her family.
A Gofundme campaign started by a friend of a friend of the Stay family in Spring, has a goal of $350,000, and as it makes the rounds on social media it looks like that goal will be met sooner rather than later. The money will go to a trust fund for Cassidy.
Ronald Lee Haskell has been arrested for the murders of the parents, Katie and Stephen Stay, and their two boys, ages 4 and 14; and two girls, ages 7 and 9. Haskell was a former brother-in-law of the Stays, who became angry that he couldn't find his ex-wife, Melanie Kaye Haskell, who had gone to Utah to get away from him.
The funeral for the Stay family will be held on Wednesday, July 16 at 2:00PM at the Hafer Road Chapel. The visitation will be held tonight from 5:30 – 9:00PM at the Klein Funeral Home 16131 Champion Forest Dr.
There is no end date listed on the Go Fund Me campaign.
