NASHUA - A 26-year-old woman is accused of emptying a "GoFundMe" account she set up to help a family with the costs of burying their daughter, police said.
Krystal Gentley, 26, was arrested Friday on a felony theft by deception charge. Police said Gentley approached a family whose daughter had passed away and asked them if she could create a GoFundMe page on the website to accept donations to cover the funeral costs. When the family contacted GoFundMe, they were told the account had been closed and all the money was withdrawn, according to police.
Gentley faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted. She was released on $5,000 bail and will be arraigned May 17.
