A GoFundMe account has been set up to help with funeral expenses for the family of the Louisiana shooting victims.

The suspect killed a total of 5: brother and sister Tanner (17) and Summer (20) Ernest, along with their father Billy Ernest (43) and the suspect's parents, Keith and Elizabeth Theriot (both 50).

According to the Washington Post story about the murders, the family took in the suspect who had recently become homeless. They were, out of the goodness of their hearts, trying to help a young man who was down on his luck, and paid the ultimate price for their generosity.

This GoFundMe is to help Summer and Tanner's mother, Rhonda Champagne, with costs associated with laying the siblings to rest.

This tragedy hits close to home for the Jeep community: one of our fellow Jeepers (a member of Louisiana 4x4) lost a brother, a niece, and a nephew in the shootings. Louisiana 4x4 has an active PayPal donation account and will also be holding a fundraiser for the family.

Please consider donating - if we all can give just a few dollars, it will help ease the burden so maliciously placed on the family of the victims.
