Scammers attempt to profit off death of daughter, father says
Gary Mike is asking community members to be careful how they donate.
Mike, father of 11-year-old Ashlynne Mike, said scammers are trying to profit from his daughter’s death by setting up unauthorized fundraising accounts. Ashlynne Mike was kidnapped May 2 and found dead the following day. Nearly 2,000 people turned out for her funeral May 6, and fundraising efforts soon cropped up to help the family with expenses.
