A Go Fund Me page set up for last week’s victim in Jamestown, is looking for support.

The statement on the Go Fund Me site, made by a close friend of the family, reads as follows.

Hello, I (Becky) am writing this on behalf of the devastated and grieving Simpson family.

On Thursday January 6th 2022, Tori-Lynn’s parents Shane and Jen started [their] day expecting to be able to sing “Happy 27th Birthday” to [their] only daughter.. Until messages of condolences started flooding them. Confusion, shock, desperation, fear, hope that it wasn’t true, that all lead to brutal and soul crushing news of Tori’s sudden death the evening before…

As the whole family is taking in such tragic news, an investigation is being executed. The family is doing [their] best to get through each day right now, but have so many questions with no answers, despair in [their] hearts and a cloud of confusion making everything harder by the minute.
Mental health is the most important factor of focus for this whole family and each and everyone who has despair and confusion in [their] lives. Not the focus of how to come up with financial saving to lay your baby girl to rest.

I have asked for [their] permission to execute this go fund me to help with the costs of laying her beautiful soul to rest properly. As everyone who has ever had to make “arrangements” knows, it is not only a difficult process but costly. The family needs to be concerned with getting through this and not with, how they will make it happen.

The family does not have life insurance to access, and have always just been there financially for [their] kids on a daily basis and their needs, this leaving them with just the necessities.
They are too humble to ask for the help I know they are going to need.

Tori-Lynn was an amazing young woman! She had the heart of a champion and loved with every part of her heart. Her bright and colourful soul will not be forgotten and her memories will be within our hearts forever.

Please help me, help the Simpson Family ♥️
My deepest gratitude and thanks to each and everyone of you.
