A memorial fund has been started by the family of homicide victim Melissa Hansen who was murdered on March 8th. Here is a message from one of the family members to the community.

“This past weekend on March 8th, my beautiful step-daughter Melissa Hansen (nee Schweitzer) had her life unexpectedly taken from us. One of her sisters and her mom found her on the floor of her apartment. We are all devastated by our loss of her and will miss her greatly. Melissa was a wonderful, caring, loving person who would give her last dime to a stranger if they needed it, even though she didn’t have much herself. She always had a kind word or compliment for everyone she met. She leaves behind three children, 19,17, and 11. There are many expenses we will need to work through including therapy for those affected by this senseless act, expenses for the children and more. We intend to set up a college fund for the children. If you can contribute something to help out, it would be greatly appreciated, and if unable to, your thoughts and prayers will help.”
