Two sources close to the Oulson family tell ABC Action News at least $7,000 has vanished from funds benefiting the Oulson family.
Koehler said none of the funds for the Oulson family generated by his efforts were impacted by the alleged theft. He said all donations he collected were paid directly to Nicole Oulson.
“It is unfortunate that during a very devastating time in my life there are people that would take advantage of a tragic situation for their own gain. It hurts even more to know that it was someone close to me that was trusted. My concern is not for myself or the money. My heart aches for those that donated with kindness in their hearts that were taken advantage of. Although there will always be struggles, I will continue to focus on the positive and know that the community is filled with love and support.”
