Fund for tragic Libbi more than half­way to­wards tar­get

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - NEWS -

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.
