The Wilmington Police Department is Releasing the Statement Below From the Family of Amy Joyner-Francis

A statement made at the request of Amy Joyner-Francis's Family:

I would like to start by saying my family is a private family and are very hurt from this loss, we appreciate the outpouring of love from everyone and thank you all for the warm words towards my sister. I mainly want to address media and social media in this statement. We are seeing many sick people out in the world who want to gain money and social fame off my family's loss of Amy. We want everyone who is truly concerned for us not to fall victim to the scams going on out around the Internet. I am the only one on social media, any other family (her mother, father, or brothers) do not have accounts. She does not have a sister as someone is claiming to be. All others will be fake. We have not set up and will not set up any fundraisers or go fund me accounts, they are fake pages and accounts are spreading hateful lies, so please do not lose your money or entertain the lies of these cruel people.

Anyone who would like to make donations can in Amy's name to the Congo Funeral Home in Wilmington.

Thank you all for your love and support to my family in this time.
