$100,000 Is Raised By Strangers Online For Disabled Chicago Teenager Who Was Tortured On Facebook Live.
An online fundraising campaign for the family of a disabled teen who was tortured on Facebook Live has surpassed more than $100,000 in donations.
In just two days a GoFundMe page has gone viral to help out the 18-year-old special needs victim who was ‘kidnapped’ and tortured in Chicago.
The fundraiser’s creator said the bid was to aid the family in financial support and to ‘prove that there is far more good in this world than evil’.
On Tuesday, the unidentified victim was filmed being bound, slapped, cut and verbally abused by a group of four men and women.
Jordan Hill, 18; Tesfaye Cooper, 18; and sisters Brittany, 18, and Tanisha Covington, 24, were arrested and charged the following day with aggravated kidnapping, aggravated unlawful restraint, aggravated battery and a hate crime Thursday.
