Kim DePaola is mourning the loss of the two young men who were found brutally killed in her car on Friday.
The two victims have been identified as 27-year-old Aaron Anderson and 25-year-old Antonio Vega.
Aaron was a good friend of Kim’s son Chris and is believed to be the intended target in the killings, while Antonio was only collateral damage.
Currently, two suspects in the murders are in police custody and are charged with arson and murder.
Yesterday after news broke that the victims and the suspects had been identified, Kim took to social media to voice her sadness and ask for prayers.
“My heart is heavy !! I am praying for the families, and babies left behind !! RIP,” Kim wrote in one Instagram post.
“No Mother should have to bury their child !! These boys were Fathers, sons, brothers,” Kim added in another post, sharing a Go-Fund me page for the victims.
In fact, Kim is vowing to do more than just send her prayers; she revealed to Radar that she plans to throw a fundraiser to help the victim’s families.
“I’m going to throw a fundraiser in the beginning of June,” Kim explained. “There are people they left behind, their families and children.”
Adding, “Aaron was at my last fashion show with his girlfriend. Three babies were left behind.”
No word yet on when or where the fundraiser will be held.
It’s great to see that Kim is doing something to help the victim’s families. The AATRH team sends our thoughts to Aaron and Antonio’s families.
