The aunt of one of the victims of the movie theater massacre in Colorado lives in South Milwaukee.
WISN has the story here. From it:
Jenny Zakovich said at first, the family of Micayla Medek knew only that she had been at the midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises” with friends, and that she was missing. But police confirmed late Friday afternoon that she was among the dead.
“The hardest part is she laid on that floor for 20 hours without my brother knowing where his baby was,” Zakovich said. “He’s going through so much torment right now. It’s terrible. You can’t explain what it’s like not knowing — and sitting and waiting”
Medek’s aunt and father grew up in South Milwaukee. Her father moved away years ago to take a job in Colorado, and that’s where Medek and her sister and brother grew up.
“She had a lot of friends,” Zakovich said. “She liked to have fun. All around, a great kid.”
Please keep the family and friends of Micayla Medek — and all the victims of this senseless tragedy — in your thoughts and prayers.
