Cash Gernon’s father – the 4-year-old boy kidnapped and killed in Texas – was reportedly barred from attending the funeral by the family.
Accused drug refugee Trevor Gernon wanted to pay his respects to the boy at the upcoming funeral, the Daily Beast reported.
“My brother just wants to say goodbye to his son and calm him down, and that was really hard to find out,” Trevor’s sister Ashlee Marcoux told the point of sale.
But she claimed that Cash’s mother, Melinda Seagroves, would not let him attend as she accused him of leaving Cash at Trevor’s ex-girlfriend’s house in Dallas, where the dead brought out of his bedroom in the middle of the night, killed and was dumped on a nearby road.
“We feel in this stalemate, just stuck,” said Marcoux of the family feud.
She said they tried to work on funeral arrangements with the Seagroves family, but the fighting bothered them.
“We spoke to a funeral home and they said that both parents must give consent for a funeral trial before they can even take care of a child,” said Marcoux.
“So we want to work with them to calm him down, but the family doesn’t cooperate with us at all. They just send bad news. You blame my brother; You blame my mother for not taking them [Cash and his twin brother] instead.”
Trevor apologized to Seagroves in a YouTube video for failing to get the dead out of harm’s way.
“This decision, made with the best of intentions, has resulted in the most terrible result, that I have paid the ultimate and painful price for my poor judgment that I have to live with every day that I will never forgive myself. It’s a nightmare, ”he said.
Marcoux admitted that her brother made bad decisions but insisted that he “has a big heart”.
“I know him and if he was a real shit and I didn’t think he would treat him [his boys] Well, I wouldn’t call you now, I wouldn’t have published this statement, I would have broken up with him, “she said. “But I know his heart and I know who he is – he’s a good person, he just made some stupid decisions.”
Darriynn Brown – who has been described as an acquaintance of Trevor’s ex-girlfriend – was arrested for kidnapping and theft after a surveillance video showed he had taken cash from his bedroom.
