Laura Acavez fund established

Friday, January 25, 2013

When 21-year-old Laura Acevez was killed on New Year's Eve in her Eureka Springs apartment, she left behind a 7-year-old daughter and infant son. The two are now being cared for by their grandparents. However, the tragedy has strained the family emotionally and financially.

To help ease the burden, friends have established a memorial fund at Cornerstone Bank. Money raised will aid the family in recovering and caring for the children. To donate, visit any of the bank's locations in Berryville, Holiday Island, or Eureka Springs. For bank hours or more information, call 479-253-BANK, or visit

  • Please know Grandparents we are praying for your

    financial needs and for your grandchildren and for your broken hearts. Please go to the Social Security Office and they will pay you monthly payments to raise your babies. Probably have to get

    custody of them also. Good Luck and God Bless.

  • No. "They" won't.

  • This is sad--the grandmother is left with an infant and another small child and doesn't have money to bury her. Has anyone checked with a domestic violence foundation to see if they can help her? The Nicole Brown Foundation, Nicky Hilton Foundation, Allstate Foundation, etc.?
