Community Remembers Murdered Mom, Kids

By  | 

Friends, family and the community came together Saturday to remember Mandy Folsom and her children Marissa,9, and Mason, 5. They were found dead in their Canon City home last Sunday night.

After the funeral there was a bake sale to raise money for Mandy's surviving family members.

"It was a 16 year old girl that just lost her family and shes going to need a lot of support and we wanted to let her know that we're thinking of her and want to help her," Vikki McFaul told KKTV 11 News.

Police have still not revealed how the family died.

The suspect, Jaacob VanWinkle is accused of first degree murder, kidnapping, and sex assault, but formal charges have not been filed yet. Prosecutors said they want to wait for autopsy results.

VanWinkle's next hearing is scheduled for March 20.

The Canon City Daily Record reports VanWinkle is being represented by public defender Daniel Zettler.
