It seems that Karla Lee, the mother of Tyshawn Lee, the 9-year-old killed in Chicago recently, can’t catch a break to save her life. She has already come under fire for allegedly purchasing a new car with funds donated to her & now the criticism has moved in another direction.
News reports from Chicago say that Lee took a trip to Las Vegas on Tuesday night not long after her son’s funeral. Lee was already drugged through the mud for allegedly using GoFundMe money to buy a brand new car.
She has since denied using the money from the fund as she said it was money she saved up beforehand. She said she needed a car for her protection because walking & taking the bus just wasn’t safe for her at that point.
As Lee’s phone number does contain a Las Vegas area code, there is currently no word on if she is visiting family. However, her relatives in Chicago are reportedly upset over the trip.
Only time will tell how this situation will unfold. VannDigital.com will keep you posted as we get updates.
