Family seeks community help after losing child in apartment fire
It’s been 5 days since 3-year-old Ja’Antwan (Jay) Edward died when two homes caught on fire on Valentine’s Day.
Now his family is looking for help of any kind.
His body remains at the morgue, with no plans yet to lay him to rest; which is why his mother, Consuelo, and others are making a plea for community help.
It was Friday evening, Valentine’s Day when flames engulfed two homes in the 100 block of North Laramie
Jay’s 14-year old brother Donte told the Tribune he believes Jay accidentally started the fire while trying to cook.
