Fund for tragic Libbi more than halfway towards target
A fund set up to help lay tragic teenager Libbi Toledo to rest and fly her father from the US for her funeral is more than halfway towards its $20,000 target.
The Go Fund Me campaign was launched by Libbi’s Californian aunt following the discovery of a young woman’s body in Kirkcaldy 11 days after she was reported missing.
She failed to return to assisted accommodation in the town following a visit to her mother’s Brechin home.
Although police have yet to formally release the DNA analysis confirmation that the body discovered in the disused scrapyard is that of Libbi, her mother, Judi, said clothing and jewellery on the victim had made them sure it was her.
Mrs Toledo said she had been left “utterly broken” by the tragedy and in the United States the young woman’s father, Joe has paid moving tributes.
Libbi’s aunt, Vicki Edwards, established the funding page to help Mr Toledo come to Scotland and after just six days, almost $12,000 has been donated from all across the globe.
A body found in a scrapyard is believed to be Libbi Toledo.
