INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA (May 16, 2015) – It has been one year since newlywed and father to be Nathan Trapuzzano was murdered in Indianapolis. Now his family is using their grief to help others. The Trapuzzano family is honoring Nathan’s memory with a memorial walk Sunday. The walk is being held at the Edna Balz Lacy Park at 10:00 a.m. Sunday.
It will raise money for the Nathan Trapuzzano foundation, which provides financial support for children who have lost a parent. Something that hits home for the entire family. Trapuzzano's widow gave birth to a baby girl, just weeks after he was shot and killed during an attempted robbery last year on April 1, 2014.
“We think that is extremely important. For people that had a parent, lost them, especially very young lost their parent. They might not grow up the same way. Whether it is emotional, financial burdens, that we would not have had to face if that would have not happened,” says Shayne Trapuzzano, Nathan’s sister.
Simeon Adams has been charged with Trapuzzano’s murder. Adams was 16 years-old when he pulled the trigger, but turned 18 this month. Adams will be in court July 27, 2015. He could face up to 130 years in prison if convicted.
