Last week we reported on a tragedy that took place in Holbrook, Idaho. A triple homicide, $95,000 in marijuana recovered as well as a dog fighting ring exposed. But what about the two little girls, two years and two months old that were found alive in the home with the bodies. They are with family now but to help ease the financial burden on the family as well as help with the girls future, Cassandra Brown, cousin to Yvette Carter, slain in the Holbrook tragedy, along with her boyfriend Bradley Johnson have set up a bank account along with an online fund to support the future for these two little girls.
Bradley described the situation for these two young girls, “For two children to have to go the rest of their lives without their parents and you know there’s no amount of money there’s nothing that we can ever have that will ever be able to replace that.”
The couple, who live in Blackfoot, organized the funds because they believe that in the midst of this tragedy, there is still good that can be done for the two little girls.
Johnson described what he feels is needing moving forward when he said, “Its just the support it’s the community understanding that this was a tragedy and nothing can change that but there’s still these two little beautiful little girls that need help.”
Part of the reason that the funds were established is because Bradley believes that in east Idaho, people watch out for each other.
Johnson further expressed the special nature of this community when he noted, “Like how you doing or it doesn’t have to be money or something else because around here when someone is sick or has something like this happen, the community brings them food or they give them emotional support. That in itself will go further than anything else ever will, that in itself is a donation.”
The eventual goal for this fund is to help the sudden financial burden placed on the family and help the girls is to live normal and happy lives, to emerge powerfully from this tragedy.
Cassandra reiterated what the fund can do, “All were trying to do is to help ensure that these two little girls have the best outcome in life that they possibly can due to the unfortunate circumstances. Their mother gave her life for them so were just trying to open up and give them the best possible chance that they can have.”
