The mother of newborn twins and a 1-year-old has reportedly passed away just three weeks after the children’s father was shot to death.
Stephanie Caceres, 27, passed away on July 26 from complications of a cesarean section she had in giving birth to twins just 10 days earlier. Her boyfriend, Jevaughn Suckoo, 26, was shot and killed on July 11. The couple also had a 1-year-old daughter, Kailanie.
Suckoo’s aunt Joni Saunders told WPTV the family is trying to figure out how to move forward after such tragedy. She described the young woman as a “dedicated mom” who “lived for her kids.” She also noted that Suckoo was very excited about the twins.
To make things even more tragic, Caceres’s mother told the same news outlet that her daughter planned to take care of her because she has diabetes.
Suckoo was killed at the couple’s home in a gated apartment complex and his death is being investigated as a homicide. No arrests have yet been made, according to the Palm Beach Post.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise money for health care, education and support for the now-parentless young children. So far over $100,000 has been raised.
