HARRODSBURG, Ky. (WTVQ) – A Harrodsburg couple, already suffering through the pain of losing a child, are now saying someone used their son’s picture on a fraudulent GoFundMe account in a bid for quick cash.
Henley Leber, the child of Collin Leber and his fiance, Reagan, died on Monday. His funeral will be held on Friday. Henley was born with gastroschisis, a condition in which a baby’s intestines stick outside of the child’s body.
The couple says someone in Lexington took a picture of the boy, and used it to set up a GoFundMe account, soliciting money to pay for funeral expenses.
Now, the Leber’s are working with police to prosecute the creator of the phony account.
