     On behalf of Nichole and Amariah, this GoFundMe has been set up by their family to assist with the cost of burial and funeral services for both Nichole and Amariah.

     Amariah was a beautiful young girl, extremely bright and outgoing, and very social. Her loss will be deeply grieved by her family, her schoolmates, and the community. We would like to ensure that her family has the resources to host a funeral service for the bright young girl, so that those she has left behind may say their farewells.

     In charge of this page is Lindsay Evans, Nichole's first cousin by marriage. I will ensure that all donations go directly to the costs of the funeral, the burials, and any remainder will be put into accounts for the care and futures of the remaining children who have lost their mother and sister, and had to endure this tragedy. 

     As we do not have contact information for the father of Lawrence Cannon, this page is not capable of assisting in the costs relating to his burial. If we are able to get in contact, and he has need, our goal may be adjusted to assist him with his costs. Our family is deeply sorry for his loss as well, and we would like to get in contact to share our support in this tragic time. (Please see Updates.)

This page will be updated with details as they emerge.

The goal of funding the service has been met, and support has graciously stepped in to bear the costs for the girls' final resting place.

The service will be held today, and has been announced to the school and local paper.

We cannot tell you how much we appreciate your support through this tragedy.

This GoFundMe campaign will remain open for those who still wish to contribute to the care and futures of the remaining children who have lost their Mother and eldest sibling.

While evil acts like these make the world seem vicious and uncaring, the outpouring of support from all of those who share and donate to support the victims screams that those evils are not the norm, are not ok, and will not overpower the good that exists in the world.

Every single one of you is a force of that good, and the support you have shown us will never be forgotten.

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.

While our family is relieved to see progress on the case, we are still overwhelmed with loss.

All of us just want to know, "Why?"

I will continue to post updates as we learn more.

From my family to you and yours, stay safe, and thank you all for your support.

As you can imagine, it has been a very busy and exhausting day for our family.

The coroner's statement hit us all very hard.

The murderer is still at large, and the police investigation is ongoing. As such, updates will become available at the discretion of the authorities, though I will continue to update with News Coverage of the event.

We cannot thank the tireless men and women of the New Castle Police Department enough for their efforts in catching those responsible for this heinous act, and for the skilled, caring, and professional work of the first responders to the scene. We appreciate you, and are endlessly grateful for the work that you do.


In other news, I have been in touch with Mr. Williams.

As per the wishes of Nichole's nuclear family, this campaign will remain in dedication to Nichole and Amariah, and her surviving children, as was originally intended, as the families are not acquainted.

I will further be speaking with Mr.Williams, in order to offer my services to him in establishing a unique campaign for him and his family, to address his specific needs, if he so wishes. I will keep you all apprised of any developments on that front as they occur.

Crisis Mental Health Services of Lawrence County reached out to us through our non-monetary donations address and has offered counseling services and a supplies drive for the needs of Nichole's surviving children, siblings, and her mother. We are extremely grateful to learn of their program and that they have extended their support.

I would like to thank all of you for showing your support in this absolutely tragic event.

For every share, and every dollar, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The community's support has been a ray of light in this dark time.

Like Amariah was.

Thank you.
