Homicides leave more than grief - Fort Wayne Journal Gazette

Jerry, to rest at Lindenwood Cemetery. He was killed in an early morning shooting on Sept. 13 with two other men.The families of the victims in what is now referred to as The Holton Avenue Tragedy had four people to bury. With the enormous costs associated with burying four, the fathers of the two teenagers reached out to the community.Contrall Harris, father of Traeven Harris, 18, and Lavall Whitt, father of Dajahiona Arrington, 18, and grandfather to her 8½-month unborn son, estimated they would need $25,000 to bury the three when they appeared at a press conference held at New Beginnings Church on Sept. 15.  That was four days after the victims were allegedly shot, and some also stabbed, by a former boyfriend, Marcus Dansby, whom police believe was jealous.The price went up when the combined funeral also included their mother, Consuela Arrington, 37.Tuesday, Fort Wayne businessman and real estate developer Bill Bean donated $25,000 to cover the remaining costs.“Nobody plans for a murder or a situation that occurred on Holton Avenue,” said Ellis, the funeral home owner. “There’s just no way you plan for that.”Victor Nelson, owner of Nelson Memorial Gardens on Eliza Street, said he realizes most residents don’t purchase life insurance.“My service costs (reflect) an understanding of the community that I grew up in. Everybody doesn’t have $10,000 lying around. Most people in our community don’t realistically get insurance,” Nelson said.The average cost for a burial and memorial service runs about $10,000, Nelson and Ellis said. David Carmichael, owner of Carmichael, declined an interview. That cost also usually includes flowers, programs for the memorial service, vault opening and closing and cemetery space. Even with a casket donated, Coleman said she needed to raise $5,200 before her son was buried.For a better understanding of how funeral costs compare in Allen County, Ellis pointed to a website www.parting.com. Although Nelson Memorial Gardens doesn’t appear on the list, the first two funeral homes listed in ascending price order are Ellis and Carmichael.About 60 percent of Nelson’s burials are pauper funerals, many of them through Wayne Township, Nelson said. A pauper’s funeral provides a cloth covered casket. The cloth covers a cardboard casket that has a plywood bottom, Nelson said.At Ellis, pauper’s funerals constitute about 25 percent of the business. Medicaid reimburses the funeral home and cemetery more than the township, but a person has to be qualified for that assistance, Ellis added.And funerals are not the only costs involved.Denise Andorfer, executive director of Vincent Village, knew the Holton Avenue family well. They moved from homelessness to their own home on Holton Avenue and were a success story at Vincent Village.“The other thing that nobody realizes is that when there is a violent crime in the home, there is nobody to help pay for the cleanup,” Andorfer said. Vincent Village expects the bill for the Holton Avenue cleanup to be close to $5,000.“We have a deductible of $2,500 per occurrence,” Andorfer said, “but the average person, if you have someone who gets murdered in your house, there’s no help. Not from what we’ve heard.” Nelson said families are so stressed about the cost of burial that other things are pus...
