Grandfather: Girls who lost parents in alleged murder-suicide have great support system

CRAFTON, Pa. —

The grandfather of three girls who lost their parents in an alleged murder-suicide earlier this month said the girls are doing well.

Amy Gorsuch was killed by her estranged husband, Richard Gorsuch, before he took his own life, according to police.

Harry Suehr said the girls, ages 8 to 11, have a great support system.

"The girls are doing really well considering the circumstances. They have their moments, but their support system is wonderful. They are handling things very well,” said Suehr.

The girls’ grandfather can’t thank their school enough.

“Crafton Elementary School has gone above and beyond to make these girls comfortable and well taken care of. They've accommodated them tremendously,”  said Suehr.

A fundraising page for the girls has raised $34,000 so far.

A spaghetti dinner fundraiser will be held from noon to 8 p.m. March 2 at the Fireside restaurant on Route 60/Steubenville Pike. Tickets are $8.
