Aurora Movie Theater to Pay for Victim Funeral Services

by at . Comments

The movie theater inside which James Holmes took the lives of 12 people last Friday is offering to pay for the funerals of those lost in the massacre.

CO Victims

As first reported by TMZ, several services were held this week, including one for a 32-year old mother of two named Rebecca Wingo.

And insiders say the owners of Cinemark called the chapel where her funeral was being held and made it clear it would cover the expenses for Wingo and also all other victims of the tragedy.

Rebecca's mother actually turned down the offer, sources confirm, but only because the Victims Advocate Fund has already paid for everyone's main funeral expenses.

Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to all those affected by this terrible incident.

Such a tragedy that this happened. It's good that they have extended their support for funeral expenses.

The theater should only pay the funeral costs, for the families who are NOT trying to sue.
