A Florida single mother, Helen Campchiaro, 38, lost two of her sons in a murder suicide just one day after she pleaded for help on social media.

Campchiaro, mother of four, set up a Go Fund Me page on Tuesday asking for financial aid for her family because they needed to find a new place to live in two weeks.

Campochiaro said that she was left financially drained and injured after recently being involved in a car crash, in her request for funds.

On Wednesday evening her son Kevin Pimentel, 12, shot and killed his 6-year-old brother Brady Pimental, and wounded an older brother in the leg.

The 12-year-old Florida boy then turned the gun on himself, his lifeless body was found inside the mobile home where the family lived.

 Campochiaro, who works two jobs, was not home at the time of the murder-suicide. Campochiaro is a seamstress and makes themed cupcakes, according to her Facebook page.

Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco, had this to say to the media during a briefing about Kevin Pimental and the Florida murder-suicide, “The mother’s going through an absolute living hell right now.

”Brady Pimentel was pronounced dead at the scene. Kevin Pimentel’s older brother, Trevor Pimentel, 16, is reportedly still receiving care for a gunshot wound to the leg in a local hospital.

While the three brothers were home alone in the Sugar Lane Mobile Home Park north of Tampa, an argument over food reportedly took place. Pasco County law enforcement officers believe Kevin and Trevor Pimentel were cooking around 6 p.m. before the murder-suicide took place.

The Pasco County Sheriff has not yet released any details from the Tampa murder-suicide.

Sheriff Nocco said that Helen Campochiaro does not yet know all the details regarding the shooting.

 Nocco added that his office has not yet informed the single mom about investigation results related to Kevin Pimentel’s motive or where the 12-year-old Florida boy got the gun. “She can’t handle that right now. She emotionally and physically can’t handle that right now,” the sheriff said.

Local police officials said that there is currently no indication their either law enforcement officers or child protective services case workers have ever been called to the Campchiaro – Pimentel home in the past.

 An 18-year-old brother also lives at the home in the Sugar Lane Mobile Home Park, but was not present at the time of the murder-suicide.
