Five months after the murder of NYPD Detective Miosotis Familia, her grieving children are speaking out publicly for the first time.
“Love and kindness are never wasted.”
Those words, from the Chairman of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation Friday, Familia’s three children given a new home, debt-free. They will be able to move in, just in time for Christmas.
“We know life can change in a minute,” the foundation’s chairman, Frank Siller, said.
Familia, of the 46th precinct, was shot and killed by an emotionally disturbed person, Alexander Bonds, back on July 4th weekend in the Bronx. Her murder gripped the hearts of New Yorkers, because the 48-year-old officer was a single mother of three, who had also cared for her own elderly mom.
