Like many in the community, we are confused, resentful, sad and most importantly, [there is] a sense of emptiness, ”she said. - Today we have to celebrate the 53rd anniversary of our mother. Instead, we have to run around and try to figure out how we are going to bury them all. "
Butts added: “We are experiencing a storm of emotion right now, and on behalf of all my brothers and sisters, I ask you to bear in mind that even with how this all played out, we still mourn four people. We ask you to find in your hearts the opportunity to donate, share and also understand that we are grieving. "
She said her brother received a call from a judge from Aransas Pass who told them about the triple murder and suicide.
