The mother’s brother, Mr Gary Hunziker, 72, told the Kansas City Star that he did not know many details around the circumstances of her death. He said that the family was shocked and that the circumstances did not matter. The loss of a sister was what it was all about.

The mother’s funeral was planned for Friday, according to her family.
