Help Asa Ellerup Start a New Life

Donation protected
Today, Asa has broken her silence on the front porch of the home that may or may not have been a crime scene, saying she "would find it helpful for a Go Fund Me" to help her.

Hi, I am Melissa Moore. People may know me as the daughter of the serial killer known as the 'Happy Face' killer captured in 1995. My mother and my family were and are victims. We did not know about his double life.
I have waited to create this Go Fund Me, as I didn't want to offer support if she would not want it. I needed Asa's consent.
Today, I have an opportunity to use my voice to help Asa, who isn't in a place to speak about the terror and horror she and her family are experiencing at this moment.
While people may assume Asa has the funds to start a new life, the assumption is just that. We don't know the financial and verbal abuse she may have suffered.

In solidarity, I kindly ask that you share this link on social media, make a comment of support, or share whatever amount you are comfortable with.

EDIT 8/11/23 The funds will go directly to Asa, as she now has her solo bank account.

For clarification, the funds are to support Asa and she can direct on what is her highest priority: basic needs for herself and adult children, to restore the home to whole (as evidence collection damaged or destroyed many critical household items), and any other need she may have that is not listed.

Your comments of support will be shared with Asa.
