In the aftermath of the tragic Eric Forbes homicide case, the Atlanta, Ga. community is coming together to try and raise funds to pay for the 12-year-old child's burial services. The places accepting donations include Dallas' Crossroads Neighborhood Grille, which is holding a fundraising event for Forbes' burial campaign on Thursday night, according to an Oct. 17, 2013 AJC report.
Diners at Cedarcrest Pizza Shack will be contributing a portion of their purchase price to the worthy cause when they eat at the restaurant this Thursday. And the company's Facebook page posted this comment: "Our thoughts and prayers are with the Forbes family and the community of families and children who knew Eric."
And for those who wish to contribute money rather than make food purchases in support of the Eric Forbes Fund have the option of visiting any Wells Fargo branch and donating to the Eric Forbes Memorial Fund.
Forbes' father, Shayaa Yusef Forbes, was arrested Wednesday for the child's Friday night slaying. Police say that the minor had injuries that showed abuse that preceded last Friday's bathtub drowning, and those injuries included bite marks, lacerations, bruises and more.
