COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – A wedding fundraising website set up by sister of the man accused of killing nine people at a Charleston church has been taken down.
Go Fund Me spokeswoman Kelsea Little told The Associated Press on Thursday that Amber Roof had removed her own profile.
The profile had been asking for donations totaling $5,000 to cover lost wedding costs, pay bills and fund a honeymoon.
Roof and fiance Michael Tyo called off their June 21 wedding after her brother, Dylann Storm Roof, was charged with shooting nine people to death during a Bible study at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.
The couple said they would donate 10 percent of the money raised to the church. Amber Roof did not immediately respond to a message sent via the Go Fund Me page.
