Family speaks out after woman was allegedly murdered by husband
CENTRAL POINT, Ore. —
The family of Tammy Hicks, the White City woman who police say was murdered by her husband on Saturday, held a press conference today, where they spoke of overhwelming support from the community.
Friends and strangers alike have come together to provide donations and lend a hand in any way they know how.
The family says this has been essential, especially for the four children Hicks left behind.
"It takes a community to do what Tammy did for these kids," says Cody Nelson, a cousin of the victim. "It's just amazing how much she really did, and it's really going to take all of us to even come clsoe to how wonderful of a mom she was."
With only a month's rent left in their family home, the children will move to live with grandparents in the area, leaving behind animals and other possessions.
The family stresses the importance of returning a sense of normalcy to the children through school and extracurricular activities.
