“It keeps me up at night thinking that whoever did this to her, blunt force trauma to the head and neck, I mean that is violent, and that person is walking around,” Hamby said.
Speaks leaves behind a girl who is 7 years old and two boys who are in their teens.
The family set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for the costs of her funeral.
“Her children have made it clear that they would like to keep a piece of her with them, but also have a place to visit where her name and life will be engraved and never forgotten,” reads a description on the GoFundMe page. “We’re hoping that we can at least give them that.”
No one has been found to blame for her d*ath.
