Fund set up to raise money to bury slain Manchester family

Posted: Updated:

MANCHESTER, Ill. (AP) - An effort is under way to raise money for the burial of 5 people shot to death this week in the small central Illinois town of Manchester.

A spokeswoman for Peoples Bank & Trust says a fund has been set up by a friend of Rita Luark, the mother of 1 of the victims and the grandmother of the two young boys who died, because Luark cannot afford burial costs.

The boys, their parents and their great grandmother were found dead in their home Wednesday. Later that day, the suspected gunman was shot and killed after he shot at police.

Spokeswoman Lorie Doolin says the fund has been set up in the bank's branch in nearby White Hall. For more information, the bank suggests people visit their website, www.bankpbt.com .
