It's been almost a year since a woman and her daughter were murdered alongside a roommate in a house on Karen Lane that was then set on fire.
Tonight, friends and family are gathered at The White Rabbit on St. Mary's celebrating what would have been Rebecca Gonzales' 30th birthday. Gonzales, who was nicknamed Veggie, her daughter Sammy Ochoa, and their roommate Pamela Wenske were killed September 14.
Sammy's uncle was arrested on sexual abuse charges. The girl's father was arrested on pornography charges. However no one has been indicted on murder or arson charges.
Proceeds from tonight's event benefit Radkids, a local children's safety and empowerment program.
Help could be available for uninsured West losses
May 21, 2013 10:52 GMT
WEST, Texas (AP) -- Disaster help may be available for losses not covered by insurance in a Central Texas town recovering from a fertilizer plant explosion.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency on Monday urged survivors of the April 17 blast in West to check with FEMA after getting an insurance settlement.
The explosion claimed 15 lives and left about 200 people hurt. Dozens of buildings were damaged or destroyed in West, about 70 miles south of Fort Worth.
FEMA cannot duplicate insurance coverage but agency officials say additional help may be available. Grants could help pay for temporary housing, home repairs, disaster-related medical and dental expenses and personal property and transportation costs.
An applicant must provide a copy of the insurance settlement letter or denial to seek additional government help.
