October 10, 2018

WOONSOCKET, R.I. (AP) — Members of a Rhode Island community are fundraising for the Woonsocket boy who survived what police called a murder-suicide involving his parents.

Organizers of the fundraiser say they’ve raised more than $22,000 for the boy. WPRI-TV reports that 56-year-old Glenn Benvenuti shot and killed his ex-wife, 45-year-old Michelle Benvenuti, before killing himself on Sept. 30.

Responding police found them dead, but found the boy alive and unharmed. The child is currently in the care of relatives.
