A fundraiser for the children of Stacy Singh–who police believe was stabbed to death in her Richmond Hill home at the hands of her husband on New Year’s Day —has raised nearly $13,000.

Singh, who was mother to a 5-year-old boy and a 1-year-old girl, was stabbed repeatedly in the back  during the early hours of New Year’s Day. The woman’s husband, Vinny Loknath, is believed to have been the perpetrator. He was found dead hanging from a tree in Forest Park, police said.

Friends of the extended family reached out to check on their needs, and learned that the family needed help to cover the cost of the funeral and to support the children.

Shivie Sukhdeo, a friend who lives in Floral Park, created the Stacy Singh Memorial Fund on GoFundMe on Jan. 4.

The fundraiser has already brought in enough money to cover the funeral expenses,Sukhdeo said. All additional funds are going to the children, who have been in the care of Stacy’s older sister since her death.

“[The goal is] to solidify a stable environment for the children,” Sukhdeo said.
