According to a statement from Parker Schenecker, his family hasn't established any memorial websites or funds that can receive financial contributions.

In the statement, Schenecker says that any website asking for such donations is "unauthorized, misleading, and merely an attempt to exploit this tragedy and deepen the sorrow of a community trying to heal."

Police arrested Schenecker's wife, Julie, on Friday. She has been charged with fatally shooting her 13-year-old son Beau and 16-year-old daughter Calyx.
