The mother of a 9-year-old Chicago boy who was lured into an alley and shot is being criticized for misspending Gofundme donations to purchase a new car.

Karla Lee, the mother of Tyshawn Lee, is under fire for using donations on a new car for herself. The money was intended to pay for Tyshawn's funeral expenses.

Lee was reportedly so distraught over her son's death on Monday, that she had to be hospitalized. But she apparently recovered quickly, and went shopping for a new car as soon as she had access to the cash from public donations.

Lee, 26, posted several videos on Instagram Saturday morning explaining why she bought a new car. But after Instagram followers slammed her for buying a car, she deleted the IG posts.

Lee explained that she bought the car for her protection. She said she was afraid to ride the bus or walk because Tyshawn's killer(s) are still on the loose.

"If a m-----f----- telling you they gonna try to take your life, too, because of whatever the f--- is going on ... they already took my son. I walk to work, I get on the bus. I'm not trying to be a target for nobody," Karla Lee said in one of the Instagram videos.

Tyshawn's Gofundme account raised just over $17,000 intended to go towards Tyshawn's funeral.

But rather than use the cash for its intending purpose, Lee purchased a new car.

Many of the donors asked for their money back.

Lee deleted her account in response to the avalanche of negative comments.

Chicago city leaders and private donors raised $54,600 in a separate reward fund that Lee does not have control over.

    I don't think it is wrong she bought a car. The funeral expenses are covered now. I think she has an overage in the money. I wouldn't feel safe walking or catching the bus if my son was just murdered either.

  • SandrasNewFave

    What a simple BICTH. Your baby was lured to his death and you have the wherewithal to form a thought, take a shower, get dressed, get to the dealership, make a selection, sign papers, take ownership, film and post to IG!!!! Then defend your actions talking bout you scurred....MOVE. Move up out the hood and do better. Since you clearly, clearly have the ability to keep it pushing.

    How do you give from your heart then you want to be in charge of what it's spent on a gift is a gift

  • http://www.nicolaloves.com/ NicolaLoves

    Your son dies, and the first thing you do is buy a car? Has he been buried yet?

    Something tells me she wasn't much of a mother when he was alive.

  • Jae

    I don't think that is the first thing she did since she was hospitalized. I am sure she is hurting. Maybe while she was in there she started to fear for her own safety. You have to admit walking and catching thebus does come with some risks. Especially since her face is plastered everywhere. Plus, more than enough money has been raised. As long she isn't flossing the money on the gram. I don't see anything wrong with it.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    I knew her ratchet as s would do something like that. You want ppl to donate to your GoFundMe page, yet your baby father is still out there NOT cooperating with police? When the goal on GoFundMe was met, why in the hell did ppl keep donating? Did they think she'd take the remainder of the money and start a scholarship or something positive for her son? HA!

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    It's possible that she is not in her right frame of mind right now. The doctor could have prescribed anti-depressants and as a result she is making questionable financial decisions. I don't know what's going on in this poor woman's head right now so I think I will refrain from judging her.

  • Too Many Colors

    Reminds me of the woman in my go to meme. See below. Leaves her kids in the hot car during an interview, monies get raised. She uses the monies on her bf rap career instead. For his demo tape. ?Now she didn't lose kids...but same premise kind of.

  • BadGalKarter

    I'm so confused by this woman. How is the car going to protect her? Is it bullet proof? Her sons death has made national news, what employer is calling Karla Lee to work a shift? If the baby father was a gang member then she knows what's up. The public has to stop being so quick to let these woman play victim. Even the wording in her video is crazy if motherfk telling you they trying to kill you TOO. So she's been in contact with the killer, killers where does the Too come from. And the whatever the fk is going on??? What's going on is that your child is dead... WTF

  • Stan4NoOne

    Low life.

  • LordeAmbler

    The city paid for his funeral. She was being a rat

  • LordeAmbler

    I don't agree people who gave were hurt. They didn't want to buy her a car.

  • LordeAmbler

    Right. I would fund it if I knew it was going to a scholarship fund.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Scared my foot. Does she think Gangstas can't find out the make/model of her new whip and track her down? That's the mentality of a hoodbooger..

  • SSSLOVELIVE

    Unless the car is bullet proof it wont protect her from someone out to get her. If she was truly concerned with her safety she would have taken that money to move.

  • SSSLOVELIVE

    When its posted for funeral expenses. Surely if she would have said it would be for a new car the sum would be about $21.

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    Darren Wilson received almost half a mil in donations to cover "court cost" he would incur for murdering Mike Brown. Those court cost never occurred for he was never charged...No ones questioning what he did with the money. It was donated to him, it's his to do with as he pleases...Its not like she cremated him and ran off with the surplus? We love doing the White man's job for him? Ain't getting nerry a dime to do so though?

  • SSSLOVELIVE

    At least bury your child before you go out and do something like this. Makes her look selfish and petty. Furthermore she didn't care that he walked the streets alone at 9 years old. Why would he want you to have a car now?

  • Torae

    If the funeral expenses were paid then what's the problem?. ..did they want her to set up a college fund for her dead child? You cant give out money then tell someone what to do with extra...it's her money deal with it. Next time don't give out money for every sob story....

  • Veritas

    How about moving out of the ghetto neighborhood. Keep hearing that people don't have the money to leave. Also, if the church picked up the funeral expenses, even after the fact it doesn't change that the money was for a proper burial. She needs to return the money or put it towards finding the kids killer. She didn't. Furthermore, I believe she and the father will somehow be found to have set their child up. She is the scum between my toes.

  • Veritas

    Just ask Biggie, Tupac, and every other person murdered inside of their car. She is a booger whi is going to be exposed for the death of her son. Mark my words. They would have already arrested someone. The reason its taking so long is because they are watching her like a hawk. They are making sure they have enough evidence to take her down.

  • Veritas

    Except what was asked for was specifically money for a proper burial. Since the church stepped in, then why isn't she putting the money toward the reward to find his killer? Because she doesn't care. Period. Meanwhile, guess who has to pay the reward money? Me and my family. I'd be thrilled if the got her, but they won't because she is the one who set her chold up. She didn't shed a tear when she was on tv. People need to wake up. Some of us aren't that blind.

  • Veritas

    I'm an atheist so I'm going to judge her for the lowlife she is. She is going to jail for complicity in her son's murder. Where's the tears, dear. Oh that's right. You can't cry when you aren't even taking care of your own kid. Maybe his grandmother will shed real tears for him since she was the one being a mother. Screw these people.

  • Veritas

    Yes, and didn't she birth 2 more children since? It's appropriate that people think these rats are clowns with their awful, stinky, day glo hair since they also seem to treat their vaginas like clown cars. If Detroit, Nashville, and Chiraq burned to the ground to ight, the world would be a much better place.

  • MookieFly

    I mean she does have a cheek piercing so I don't know why everyone was expecting much. Ok lol let me stop. Losing her son is presumably a hard time for her. Hell, it would be a hard time for anyone. She just might not have her priorities in line with all the commotion and heartache happening at this time.

  • Veritas

    She is a stripper. Did you not see her twerk video with her cheesy, pimply rear end? Strippers aren't called in or scheduled. They choose when to work because they pay the clubs to come in, like a hairdresser pays for a chair in a salon. She is a private contractor. The IRS is going to lock her up. You just kno

    She better save some for bail money. She is a guilty piece of crap.

  • MookieFly

    Shoot you and me both would be in the same bucket, dazed and distraught. But at the end of day, she is grieving the only way she knows how. NOW I know if I give somebody some money because they ain't got none and need gas, food in the fridge, etc(we aing talking about homeless people because it's too many other variables there like drugs and whatnot) I betta not see a pic online of your assT in the club, hair done, nails did and whatnot. Trick, you said you was broke and needed xyz smh

  • Too Many Colors

    Sorry hun. I e-love you to death. But Google "Darren Wilson money" and look at all the folks in comments sections of stories that DID question or say something about the money he collected.

    Usatoday pure did a story basically saying it was fugged up that Wilson's fundraising surpassed the money Michael Brown's family got. And really I could care less about THEM. Those white folks problems. Maybe a few coloreds. But I don't personally or by association know anyone who gave to either.

    There WERE folks on flip side I know who donated towards Karla's new whip tho. Some people right here on this SITE claimed they did. My coworkers in Chicago as we have not one, but TWO IL offices (Chicago and Lake Forest) not only gave to this heffa, but got our company to damn match it! Like $300-400 total.

    Enjoy those tags my company sponsored for your crook ass Karla!

    Well once you give it it's gone If you gave it with good intent that's what's important Plus we know how the media exaggerates anything to make black folks look bad So would it make ppl feel better if the money was from her paycheck & she leased the car? idk but If she did or didn't once you give it away it's not your money anymore I can't believe ppl think it's okay to berate a mother who just lost her child over some money smh

  • ReadingUfromTX

    See this is the problem with the world today. Everybody wants to keep defending stupid and crooked people to the point that we are going to end up in the world where there is no moral compass.

    What she did was clearly theft by deception. She asked for money for a specfic purpose, therefore people gave. That is why you have to state your reasons on the gofundme page. If she wanted a new car, then she should said so then, not after the fact when she was stunting for da gram. Donating for a funeral is one thing versus donating for a car.

    Also, why cant we berate her actions? She posted it for the world to see. If she wanted privacy, she should of stayed off of social media. It's really not that hard.

    @ 8:00, you can see him saying all of these wonderful things about his wife, but, he did NOT comfort her at all while she was crying. He did not hold her hand, either. If something had happened to his baby, you can tell that he would have left her. America rescues the wrong people.... because now, people don't understand that what is clearly wrong, can not have an excuse made for. Children are falling through the cracks. Dying. :(

    On point. I am not surprised people are defending her selfish actions. You notice how so many popular tv shows now a days have us cheering on the bad guys an morally corrupt behavior, for some it may program them to think nothing of crooked behavior

  • JerseyMom

    I heard the funeral expenses were already paid for so what else was she supposed to do with the remainder of the donations. Blank stare.

    On another note, I tagged you on the Twitter hashtag #ShaunKingLetMeDown. It looks like the white alleged con man has striked again. Money raised and no accounting. SMDH

    Why would anyone expect anything more from a hoodrat gang girlfriend in the projects. The child looks to have been taken care of when he was alive. But clearly his mother and father would rather have death insurance, lawsuit, and go fund me payout money than a living child because they have deeply ingrained gang mentalities. MOE right? They'll print up some RIP T-shirts and call it a day. Gang mama will be enjoying her new car, money in the bank, and will be pregnant with her replacement kid by Christmas. This was a set up and whoever is profiting off it is a suspect in my opinion.

  • Li

    A new car heals all ills.
    I'm not sure that a funeral home offered or did not offer to pay for the funeral. I live in Chicago and I'm hearing it both ways. If there is an offer for a free funeral, then mom should have offered to repay the funeral home or give them some of the money; but not take the ALL the money and buy a car.
    If the Go fund was raised to help her pay bills or buy a car, then yeah it's okay. But the fund was for a funeral. If SHE had control over the Gofund then she played the public.

  • Li

    What's really disturbing his her reason - so she could get to the work "safely". Well being in a car doesn't make it anymore safer. Regardless of how you go, people are going to find you.

  • Li

    It does seem that way doesn't it? I'm suspicious about WHO actually killed the little boy.

  • Li

    AGree.

  • Li

    That money (20/20 hindsight) should have been put in a trust fund for the kids by whoever raised the $$$. I believe it was doled out to her bit by bit and the court mandated that she spend it on the kids. But she didn't.

  • Li

    She could have offered to give the funeral home "some" money. Funeral homes are businesses you know. They lose $$ when they bury free.

We do that. We own that. We're sooooo concerned? Top stories on google have switched from who did it, to what is his mother doing with the donated money. Thanks to us. We did The Man's job for him?? Now, I don't e-love you, but I like you a bunch, and I would love to have you toss my salad one day, but Imma say it again-No one is questioning what Darren Wilson is doing with the blood money donated to him??You not hearing me. I donated in honor of Trayvon, Mike Brown, Gay blogger...Its all deductible and I can afford it...I would never worry my naturally curly head over what's being done with it?? Just like They ain't worried about Darren. We won't be happy til this rat, this skank, this trash is dead like her son. Then we'll fake care in a passive/condescending way??But you not hearing me. Seen it all before, heard it all before...And here we are, again.

  • ihatethesebitches

    I'm from Chicago, and this woman has not shown any care towards this child's murder until people started stalking her Facebook, and IG pages with condolences. She only had one photo of her son on her page. All she posted about, and mentioned was "getting this money," for she is a stripper. Her, and the boy's father acts as if they could really care less for this child. It's so sad.

  • ihatethesebitches

    She wasn't. Her, and the father are, "about that life." Whatever the fuck that dumb shit means.

  • ihatethesebitches

    Funeral services was donated by Leak's funeral home, and St. Sabina church. The city is not paying for nothing. And Father Michael Plaeger, from the church is one of the one who created the fund to catch the murder.

  • Canary Red™

    You know personally I have always been cautious of donating to these types of incidents or any for that matter. Think about it - what in the world are they going to do with ALL that money??? Even if you go all out for a funeral the most u will pay is 10,000 dollars. Then you have that money left over - they are not going to give it back.

    And to her comment about she is a target whether you walking or driving if they want you - they will get u.

    What's also sad is that her actions will now make folks more reluctant to donate to people who REALLY need it.
    (Allegedly) the funeral was paid for by others...the very LEAST she could've done...was wait a respectable amount of time before she did anything with the funds. And WTH are you doing on the gram at a time like this? I hope she's not really THAT rachet...I really do.

    What did people want her to do with the money? I don't get it. A really nice funeral costs about 10k. What should she do with the other 65k? This woman has lost her baby and people are attacking her over dumb mess. I remember what it was like to live without a car. It's a major hassle if you live outside of NYC, the only place in America where a car is an inconvenience. I totally get her buying a car with the money.

    I'm not wrapped up in why she bought the car. She didn't have one which means she needed one. She's not used to being a public figure so the attack by the public caught her off guard. I'm of the opinion that she should not have explained. She needed a car. That's the bottom line. I'm glad people banded together to help her get it.

    Yes let's buy a car and drive around the hood in struggle instead of paying it forward .... Yep that sounds about right.... Oh yeah and let's not forget to brag about it on instagram nevermind my innocent child lies dead in the morgue because of my adult actions for laying up with a gang member that who want cooperate with authorities ! Sounds about right !

  • Too Many Colors

    Nobody will tell me how she supposedly scared for her life, buys a car, and then advertises what kind it IS complete with pics etc on IG.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    75k in donations have come in. Funerals don't cost that much. Should she give the rest away even though she lives in poverty? Is that what you would do with the money?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

  • Too Many Colors

    That is the issue. People did not band together to help her get a car. That is why folks are angry. They were under impression that they helped her PAY for expenses for a funeral that hasn't even happened yet! The fund specified that. Not buy Karla a car!

    If she would've gotten the car after the funeral I think this mighta played our differently.

  • Andrea Williams

    Good Morning All.......How damn "scared" can you be if you are posting pictures of your new ride on IG and your only son who you love soooo much, is not even buried yet? Hoodrat move! I sure hope that in view of her seemingly callous behavior, that they didn't have anything to do with this. In today's world, you just never know. Have a good day everybody.

    Chile now instead of car washing now ... Folks just stand there with buckets! Everyone now wants a hand out ! What happened with setting up some type of funds at a bank... I saw a chick on my fb begging on GOfund me to pay for breast surgery but continues to post every day about the latest shyt her man bought.... But you want me donate to your azz?

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    Don't be getting frustrated with me woman. She still needs to relocate and there is money left over for her to do that. Hopefully she will. She is still young enough to wash the hood off of her and begin to think more mainstream. It's a process. If these rappers teach us anything it's that money is not necessarily a cure all for hood ratchetness. She's not going to make perfect decisions out the gate.

    I'm not sending my hard earned cash for anyone rat or suburban only for the individual to offend me by buying something thats not appropriate.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    That's cool. I understand that she was raised like that because I was too. I didn't always have a car and it SUCKED. Ever pushed a laundry cart a few blocks to wash clothes? Ever pushed a grocery cart several blocks from the grocery store? Ever did these things on a regular basis? I have and that's why I understand. Yall sound like rich politicians that are completely out of touch with people that live in poverty. I'd like to consider that a good thing but it's a terrible thing.

  • AllmylifeIhadtofight

    Yes!!! Cause they were calling the funeral home for Jarret and telling the family to put him in a wood box or cremate him cause "it don't take all that" to bury somebody.

    She been without that stuff tho Bird. She couldn't have waited FOUR more days? And got a car on Wednesday? After the funeral? I'm sure she is not trying to wash no clothes etc right now or she wouldn't have been at the car dealership. She found a ride to the car dealership now didn't she?

  • Soon2BWife

    He will be buried on Tuesday; services were paid for in full by the city of Chicago and/or a local funeral home and a large Chicago Catholic church. He did not live with his mom or dad, he lived with his G-ma. As of last night, his father also set up a go fund me account with a goal of 5k and the hashtag #WENEEDHELP. This morning the memorial site for Tyshawn Lee and near by garage where burned to the ground. The fire department is investigating the cause.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

  • Too Many Colors

    Also, Karla circle is jacked up. If this was my xxxx (insert Familial connection) I WOULD HAVE told her...let's funeralize this baby first. We have plenty of time after to do XYZ. Where do you need to go? Let me or 1 of these other 25 folks that are in the living room ...take you.

    Not me. I'm 2 paychecks away from disaster STILL. You do what you have to do to survive.

    Far as sounding like politicians. ..We don't make the rules. But a car is condidered a luxury by even state agencies. Not a necessity. Social services is QUICK to tell you that. It's why folks with one qualifiy for less assistance. This state makes you claim it when you fill out the forms. Will run your name through NC DMV to verify it. How you can afford a 12k car with a $300 note but in here asking for our federal food stamps.

    And in court the law says the same thing. I've been to traffic court. A license is not needed to live. Driving. It's a privilege under eyes of the law

  • Sherry

  • Datsmdubya2u2

    I wont slam her for buying a car. maybe she did need a car but i will slam her for bragging these people had never had any direction and couple that with poverty...its just a recipe for bad decisions..they have no clue about proprietary or optics manners or anything..she probably never had more and a few hundred dollars at a time plus the constant need people have for validation thru social media. She couldn't help herself she had to run tell dat! The old adage keep what you have to yourself been out the door

Knew someone who started one for a man who needed chemo. Later on he 'altered' it and said it was a travel fund so he could go back and forth to be with the patient. Then when the man died, it became the 'travel/funeral expenses fund.' I don't mind helping folks but i can't lie, i'm a bit apprehensive when it comes to GoFundMe.

    No one NEEDS a car in Chicago. There is plenty of public transportation and the parking is extremely limited and often quite expensive.

    Ms. Lee is an unfit mother and her despicable character is partly to blame for her son's death.

  • TheRealLee

    A funeral does not cost $72K so what is she supposed to do with all that money. It wasn't gathered for her to replace her son but to make her life a little easier and cover expenses. Transportation would be one but the order makes her look bad.

    She doesn't owe an explanation but it would have been nice for her to state her appreciation and show her intent so it does not look like a money grab: Funeral expenses, Transportation, Relocation away from thug town. It's a good plan and who can be against that.

    That woman went to that alley out of her mind calling for her boy expecting him to reappear. People grieve differently. I expect the father to come forward and claim a piece of that. If he didn't pay child support he deserves nothing. She needs to get on and just get out of dodge.

    From GOfund me:

    "If you collect at least $20,000 and over 200 donations in the calendar year, WePay will send you a 1099-K form by January 31st of the following year. The 1099-K form is simply intended to track the movement of funds.

    Additionally, WePay will not report the funds you collect as earned income. It is up to you (and a tax professional) to determine whether your proceeds represent taxable income. The person who's listed on the WePay account and ultimately receives the funds may be responsible for taxes."

    The money was donated to her its up to her to use the funds .. If the funeral was paid for then she did the next thing she needed after that ..

    Does she even have money set aside for his headstone? Why is the father quick to talk to reporters, but won't talk to police? Why would she spend all on a car? Be smart about it get you a working car put aside money for your moving expenses, put aside money for your deposit and rent.

    At this time all I have read is the post story of this incident. Someone help me out-

    Who found him in the alley ? If his mom how did she know he was there?

    How do we definitively know it was gang related?

    Why was this boy shot so many times in his upper body and in the head?
    This is overkill!

    No disrespect or pointing fingers but I need more facts and info. I've researched and the information is very vague and has holes. Also the stories about him are now overshadowed with news about her buying this car.

  • Emdiva

    This right here!! So paying the funeral home would've kept her in poverty but not buying a new car which I read is a 2015 Chrsyler. I don't know if that's accurate but it's disgusting no matter how you look at it.

  • SG

    Nothing is wrong with helping people in need, but misappropriation is a concern. In this case, why did her GoFundMe even exist when the funeral costs were already being covered? Now come to find out neither she or the father were even raising the boy. Shouldn't money go to his grandma, his actual caregiver?

    'GoFundMe' needs to close up shop. And this piece of trash mother is the reason why. Your ONLY BABY was murdered execution style and hasn't been buried yet and you can think clearly enough to be ALL OVER SOCIAL MEDIA, get the donations from HIS BURIAL FUND and purchase a car???? And this 'woman' has the nerve to defend her actions. If I felt someone was after me I wouldn't care because I wouldn't want to live after that happened to my baby!! She's involved.

  • Canary Red™

    "She's involved"...I can't help but ponder the same thing???!

  • Angela

    How can she even think about work when her only baby was murdered and hasn't been buried? How can she even think about living? Because she wasn't a true mother like she's pretending to be.

  • SG

    She should have just said what she was raising money for....a car, etc. The fact that she set it up under the premise of raising money for the baby's burial is duplicitous and that's why people are giving her the side eye.

  • Emdiva

    Didn't someone say she nor the father raised him and that it was the grandmother who did?

  • Too Many Colors

    If this the case, where is grandma's cut? Where her car at?

  • Emdiva

    That's what I would like to know. If this is true why is everyone acting as if they're the ones most affected by his death? I can't keep up with them stories.

  • TooMunch

    She should have paid for her son's $17,000 funeral, now she may be arrested for charity fraud. Smh

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Apparently Karla and Pierre's (I believe that's the name of the father) priorities are completely out of whack. Pierre would rather grant interviews to the local newspaper than help the police find who did this to his son. Karla's out here buying whips before her son is even laid to rest. No one expected her to return the money but damn have some wits about it. Do something with the money that would better your situation.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Hold on. If a third party is covering the funeral expenses, why did she create the GoFundMe account?

  • Yes, I’m That Leah
  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    I love to shop. I really do...and I shop constantly. I even use shopping as a pick me up if I'm feeling a bit off. I understand retail therapy better than most. If I lost anyone close to me the last thing on my mind would be shopping, and I repeat I shop constantly...the UPS and FedEx dudes and I know each other I get stuff delivered so often. It's unsettling to say the least that a person who was hospitalized for grief on Monday can manage to be at a dealership haggling over car prices by Saturday with money gained from the death of their child. That's some cold azz shyt.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    LOL. Let me say this and get back to reading my damn bible. When one or both parents are involved in thug life, this isn't news. Yes, it's a child and unfortunate, but, it's part of their life. Case in point, mom went and bought a car with the funeral money. So much for grieving. The child was nothing more than a prop and later a casualty.

    When it was shared on SR's blog the dad is the grandson to the late drug king pin Flukey Stokes, I lost all interest. I knew/know who they are, so did the Lee chick. You can't like the lifestyle up to the point when tragedy strikes. Dad's a gangbanger; they're not afforded emotions and concern.
    They can stop reporting this and call it what is truly is: ni**er schit. Dad knows or have an idea of who did this, but won't give names. You lost all my interest in this story.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Because it was a fast way to come up and play on the emotions of the public. Mission accomplished. Death to GoFundMe.

  • Cricket404

    Dregs of society. I won't even try to wrap my intelligence around this foolishness, it make no sense because these are not sensible people.

  • 80sChild

    This story along with her son being executed due to his father's gang ties and the father not cooperating with the cops but yet a White Priest is the one seeking help and to pay for protection/relocation costs for anyone who comes forward with info to get justice for this little boy...I really have No More Words when it comes to our foolishness. I've concluded 80 percent of our people are a hopeless cause. And ole Jesse, Sharpton, Obama (our so-called leaders) believe this too, that's why they don't try to encourage us to really get our act together. They see this foolishness is out of control and there's no turning back now.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Right. Like who's to say his own daddy aint kill him? I get it. Uh huh.

  • yoyo the dog

    She supposed to struggle? I'm pretty sure the kid wouldn't mind his mother driving around in something nice. She's has money to pay for the burial y'all just jumping to conclusions.

  • Li

    So it's possible the little boy was in the (foster) care of his Grandma, because the mom and dad were unable to take care of him? Precious.

    Is the father in hiding?

  • Li

    Exactly. Did the mom support the son through child care payments?
    There's more to this story.

    TODAY. Another GoFund was opened by the dad...then shut down. This was today.

    "I understand the mother of my son did wrong by that money but what the news is not telling, that they are only paying for half the cost of everything," Wooh Gotti, an alias used by Tyshawn's dad Pierre Stokes, wrote on the page. "They are blaming us so they don't have to pay the full cost of everything. She is in the wrong for doing what she did with the money for our son, just give me a chance to lay my son to rest the right way."

    The page asked for $2,500 and also was selling Tyshawn memorial t-shirts for $25-$45.

    Although I may not agree with her spending the money on a new car, it is her money and her choice. When you give, you give to give. If you give with stipulations, then it becomes a loan. In my opinion, the best way to avoid this is to pray over the money that it be used as only God intends.

    From what I am hearing the child was living with grandma, the girl did not have custody. I do not know if this is a rumor or true but have read it on several comment sections

  • lawless

    If she wasn't taking care of the child while he was alive , why should she receive any funds ? should the money not go to the grandmother who was taking care of him? and why ask for money when she already knew the funeral was paid for? This chick got over by playing on people's sympathy.. I am not understanding the logic of some people in this discussion

  • BigMeanie

    NO!! She can stay right where she is, that's where she belongs. I don't want her moving by me. She can keep her ass right where she at

    Wait so she posted about getting a new car before her son was killed? What what? My head hurts...

  • kish nacaal

    hella foul...if she was that scared for her life she would have taken a little bit of money and moved to somewhere safer after paying for her sons expenses. Oh thats right she didnt have to take care of the funeral services. For all the black male bashing that is going on we need to look at some of these damn thots. That is some down right disgusting shit to do. That beautiful black boy and you grieving by getting a car trash

  • BigMeanie

    I believe in God. All of this "Do not judge" BS needs to stop. People use it as a way to not have to hear about what is wrong with themselves and the world. It is in the Bible in Mathew and it does not mean not to judge people. It means to examine yourself before you judge people. If you then find yourself worthy to speak on it then speak on it. It is the single most misunderstood phrase in the bible and it needs to be understood so that all of this enabling behavior will stop. God gave me a mind with reasoning capabilities, if someone is doing wrong, I will judge that person as a person who does wrong.

  • Yes, I’m That Leah

    Looks as if she wasn't worried about how her child got around safely but yet now here she is "all of a sudden" worried about herself. Bia PLEASE! You should've used that for your son regardless of how! If someone else paid the bill for funeral cost, instead of being SUPER SELFISH, You should've donated or atleast waited to buy ur b**ch as car, but NAH show the world your true remorse and feelings! But hey at the end of the day Im just talking bc I can, I personally wouldn't do it, but ALOT OF PPL WOULD do the same. Doesn't deem them bad ppl, but it DOES HOWEVER make me question, WHO KILLED this child!

    It is suspicious that she went to buy a car before her son was even buried. I wasn't aware that her son didn't live with her or his father. I read that Tyshawn was shot from behind. If it was a gang hit, they want you to see it coming. Shots from behind means the killer(s) knew him.

  • That’s Interesting

    I will reserve judgement because she just lost her child. I am confused about what people expected her to do with the money. Her son is gone and I'm assuming the funeral was paid for. Was she supposed to leave the money in her account to draw interest? I'm glad she was able to get a car. I'm sure it's like buying a roll of toilet paper after your child was murdered. People are SO critical. I don't agree with the way she expresses herself but so be it...

    First she's 26 and immature but a victim. Just because she is a poor black women doesn't mean she deserves any less respect than any other woman of another race. She deserves compassion not criticism but she needs to grow up and grow up quick. Hopefully she has enough money for the funeral. It's no way I would have lost a son and be worried about my own life and allow a coward male gang member to choose a gang over me and my families safety
    F a car. Once again black people place all the blame on the black woman and zero blame on the cowardly men who make babies and don't protect their families. Black male Gang cowards .
    The coward black male who murders children and hide behind a gang or with a gang who probably doesn't even own a house in the area he is terrorizing. Cowards attack women and children when they don't stand up like men. I'm more concerned about the cowardly daddy. He will not corporate with the police who knows who murdered the son.

  • the guest

    These hood rats got bleeding heart white liberals wallets on lock. Everyone throwing money at them for being fcuk ups and bad mothers. Nobody throwing money at the struggling dedicated doing the right thing mothers paying their way and their children's through school. God put this rat through a trial and she won. That donation money that was her victory was to be her children's reward. Isn't that why she left them in the car to get a job to get money to take care of them. Then she gets money and takes care of a man's rap dreams. She could have bought a modest condo outright and put her babies in a reasonable private school. A demo tape? Where does that even come into the equation. Why wasn't rapper boyfriend watching the babies in the car when she went to the interview.

    I am disgusted by both the father and mother. He is a lowlife p.o.s. who won't cooperate with authorities to find the killer and she's out here shopping and posting pics for the Gram. To top it off, she has the nerve to cuss out the very people who took money out of their own homes to ensure that her baby has a proper burial. This the kind of foolishness that makes me uncertain about donating money to anyone.

    When I first read this story I was surprised at some of the
    comments. Now I better understand where people are coming from regarding the car and the parents themselves. This story is tragic all around because there are a lot of unanswered questions and the mother purchasing the car before burying her son is just one part of this story. More importantly, a young boy is dead allegedly because of gang retaliation . The father claims that he
    answered all the questions asked of him by the police, but they want more. He could be lying but sometimes truth is hidden in the lie. For me, at the end of the day I’m just praying that there is justice for Tyshawn Lee.

    Agreed.... Now that was not the wisest thing to do .. but the woman reportedly lost her son due to her baby's father gang affiliation. A gang affiliation... I truly hope a father did not lose a son due to such wreckless immature behavior.
    What is the gang doing for that mans family?
    gang members are like I said the biggest cowards... And blacks are always terrified to say anything about the sorry worthless men who put everyone's lives in danger. Imitating rap music terrorizing men women and children and the only finger that is being pointed over a few thousand dollars is at the extremely fragile and maybe not even mentally stable mother. Could you imagine a white mother who's child was murdered treated like that . She should give the money back if the people request it but can we be a little more humane.

    People just throw out "Do Not Judge" to control other people. To try to take control of a conversation, to appear the superior or to stop someone from confronting them on their behavior. It is the single most damnable phrase there is. Most don't even read the scripture, they just spout what they do not fully understand. Most clergy do not understand it, it is a way to control their "flock", that is also where that whole false prophet thing comes into play,

    One does not go and buy a brand new car with money donated for a funeral, before the funeral even takes place. Extremely poor etiquette is what Emily Post would say, just a guess on that, but just WRONG.
    With GoFundMe you are allowed to withdrawal the money in 5 days. She was counting the seconds. Everyone got played. I would think people could cancel their donations threw their credit card companies.

    I am not asking this to be funny or to be derogatory, but is this chick retarded? Is that why she did not have custody of the child.

    Of course they know something. That's why they are not helping the police. Because their son's murder was their biggest hustle yet. The parents did this. These are the sick times we live in when there ARE parents who kill their children or lock them in basements for years for insurance pay offs.

  • the guest

    They didn't love him and planned his murder for a pay off.

  • the guest

    No, set up a college scholarship fund in his name. Or maybe a community program in his name. Maybe something in his name.

  • the guest

    But she bought a car. I'd understand renting an apartment is a healthier environment and starting over. But I think the parents planned their child's murder for a pay off. Everything is a hustle to gang members.

  • the guest

    Evil but so true. LOL

  • stanhope

    AMEN!!!! Preach. Miss Baby Mama waits until she can access the money and immediately goes out and buys a car. I'd be curious what she bought and what it cost.

  • SameoleJ

    I agree with what you are saying, the only part is she didn't create the GoFundMe account, someone did it on her behalf. I am sure they had good intentions and are probably holding her accountable for using the money for personal "gain". However, there have been a lot of people who received money in this form who really did not deserve it- Zimmerman, the Church shooter and the list goes on.

  • Luis Dobbs

    ok cool it "detective" getting shot from behind doesn't mean his killer knew him it just means they snuck up on him. if he was shot in his home and there were so signs of a break in or a struggle that might mean he knew his killer but he was shot in an alley. it sounds like you're trying to say that his mother had something to do with it but that's unlikely. just cause she's a bad mother doesn't mean she had something to do with his murder. I think she's just not used to having that much money at her disposal and she's taking liberties with it that she probably shouldn't but that is no reason to imply that she had anything to do with it. it just means she's a person of low character.

  • SameoleJ

    If she is a stripper and had no car..........she needs to stop stripping, seriously.

  • SameoleJ

    Or he could have been running away from the shooter. I agree that saying the mother is involved is a stretch, just because she misused the funds. Dumb and irresponsible...yes. Not a very good parent...yes. Killer, possible, but a stretch. She is only 26 years old, and probably never had much of anything, giving her access to that much cash at once, was never a good idea. Also, people mourn differently, my grandmother did not shed a tear until the moment my grandfather's coffin was lowered......that did not mean she did not love him. They had 70 years of marriage. Granted, she did not go out and buy a car.

  • SameoleJ

    Sandra, I thought he was headed to the grandmother's house? If that is the case, you can't blame her and if this child walked this route all the time, which seems to be how the killer were able to grab him, the family or friends were more than likely comfortable with him walking, since this was a neighborhood he grew up in. I didn't allow my children to walk alone, even if there was no adult, they traveled in groups of 3 children or more, but some children were allowed to travel the neighborhood alone, because people knew them and watched out for them. This could be the case here.

  • TheRealLee

    I think you meant the $55K as I'm re-reading as well as from other sites that this was raised but always assumed it was for the woman to make use. This also raises a question as to burial payment and affordability into a new car with the balance.

  • Wildcat34

    Although, most would have preferred for her to use the money to find better living arrangements, I can see her needing a car from a different perspective. Plus, didn't she already pay for the funeral of her son? And why doesn't the media audit the go fund me accounts of our fair withered skin friends?

  • Zettai

    This is why I do not give people ish no matter what their sob story. People walk up to me on the street asking for change because of this that and the other I don't give. 99% of those people are using this money for drugs or they just plain don't need it and are going to their homes with a two-car garage at the end of the day. Sorry for that one percent but I'd rather not take the chance of my hard-earned money going to hoodrats.

    Shame on this whole family, but RIP little boy, it isn't your fault you were born into it. You did not deserve what happened to you.

  • SameoleJ

    I agree, I won't slam her for buying the car, but would hold her accountable for having her priorities all messed up/ Perhaps she was really saving up and like a typical young person, who had nothing and suddenly has access to a large amount of money, she ran out and got this one (which by the way is only 25,000 brand new and even less if used). It was dumb and she clearly does not have a good group of people surrounding her, but to be calling her a hood rat, etc. and some are even saying she had something to do with her child's death, is just as wrong as the actions that she took. I hope that she looks back at this moment and realizes her error and does better with her life.

  • SameoleJ

    Karla Lee did not set up the GoFundMe account, a friend of hers did. Should she have gone out to purchase a car, so hastily? Personally I would not have, but she did. This does not take away from the fact that the child is dead and the killers have not been caught and honestly it is taking away from that fact. Now that everyone has expressed their ire at the mother and her bad choices, can we go back to mourning the loss of a child?

  • LordeAmbler

    Condoning this isn't going to make it right. Even if she needed a car why post it online? There is no excuse. And a funeral does cost 7k to 8k.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    now i wasn't anything about this because me and my friend got into a heated argument about this my question was why wasn't she worried about getting a car when her son 9 yr old son was walking ALONE to his grandmother house. and if that child did not live with her she dead azz wrong this is why ppl who really need help cant get help b/c folks like her

  • Ms.Capricorn101

    It's not the grandmother's fault Sandra. She could be old, sick or handicapped as far as we know. Black grandmothers are some of the dedicated, sweet, selfless, caring & outstanding women i know.

    Gm and i think shes just gutter in every sense of the word.i just wanna know why you wood by a car for protection AFTER your baby has been murdered....how was you WALKING to and from a strip club to call yourself working,why are you on social media cussing ppl out and not living in shifts with police racking yer brain for who could be responsible for changing the landscape of your world as you know it!!!!Meanie,these are all QTNTBA.and what pisses me off past the point of pisstivity.is that she,as a mother doesnt seem to give a damn.

  • BRING THE PAYNE

    Gm,biiiiiiih,ive seen it!!!!My sista woke me up with aunt vivs DRAG ME TO HELL FEST????

  • SameoleJ

    We can't control what the mother and father do with the law or the money, and since I can't. I would rather focus my energy on praying for the child's spirit and the grandmother who tried to do right by him, when she took him in. Perhaps they should have created the GoFundMe for the grandmother and had her be the one to access it, but that isn't the way it went. I don't know the mother's background and how she was raised, but something tells me that it wasn't what a lot of us were exposed to and her being a teenage mother is no excuse, as there are plenty who have excelled in life and motherhood. I just would like to see the focus go back on finding the killers of this baby and off the parents. Have we even heard from the grandmother? As this is the only person who should be listened to and sympathy/ assistance directed to. But that is just my opinion and I, like you, am a stranger looking in and therefore only have external knowledge of this families dynamics.

  • tynamight

    Saaad!

  • EScrazy

    The thing in Chicago now is "clout killings"...Tyshawn is basically a clout killing. Whoever killed him is aiming for more clout in the streets so they can extort people for money. If you're a brazen killer like whoever killed Tyshawn people will pay you to spare their lives if they're heavy in the streets. Many of you are out of towners who haven't set foot in Chicago just read what media feeds you. I've lived here all my life I'm 30 now and believe what I'm telling you. His mother and father knew he would be targeted because his dad is a "heavy" in the gang world of Chicago, the dad himself is selling "memorial" shirts now for $15-$35 a pop. Chicagos young black people are torn right now between reality and Internet and the Internet is winning. Most of these killings are bragged about on Twitter and IG the killers aren't hard to find if the police want to find them

  • BabyBlueJay

    Completely agree. These young dudes in this city are RECKLESS! They aren't afraid of anything and the slightest incidents entices them to shoot, just to show people they aren't "soft".

  • BRING THE PAYNE

    This may all be true.but if your child is dead and you willfully not helping law enforcement.your baby aint in the ground and you can cuss out social media for asking about what you doing with funds YOU asked the public for...but still go to great lengths not to step the killers toes by naming names.for me,personally,its no amount of explaining i cud hear.that makes any of her actions cool.what she did with the money at days end,i cud careless about.she feels her baby IN A BETTER PLACE.yet she needs a CAH cause she aint trying to go to this BETTER PLACE with him.cool...TELL THE POLICE WHOSE THREATENING YOU SO THEY CAN HAVE SUM PLACE TO START IN BRINGING SOME REAL CLOSURE.AND LAY THIS BABY TO REST WITH DIGNITY....AND QUITE USING HIS DEATH AS A "PUBLIC" COME UP.this is how i see it.right or wrong you and i care more for this child than his mammy...dont even mention the father.they outta be ashamed,grown azzes using this dead childs body to shield them.its ashame before God.but HE isnt dead and HE saw who did what and why.ill find my peace and protection in THIS...not a NEW CAR.its all good SJ?

  • BigMeanie

    It should be telling to you that complete strangers on the internet are expressing more concern, sorrow and respect to this child than the egg donor has shown so far.

    The Mom seems to have "hood" mentality before this tragedy... soooo her actions shouldn't be too shocking. And she is currently out of her mind with grief,fear, etc etc... on top of her "hood" mentality... she slept in the alley for a little while after this happened... Im from Chicago ALL ALLEYS R RAT infested especially at night... so that shows u how her brain is doing right there

  • shaybytheway

    However she did post a video on facebook begging for contributions to it.

  • SameoleJ

    Again, your post is focusing on what she did and did not do, which we have no control over. The car has been purchased, the money spent, she got the "come up" and the killers are still not caught. Nothing can be done about that. To hell with her and the father, let's stop acknowledging their existence........as their actions have shown their true character. That is what I am saying.

  • SameoleJ

    Huhn?

  • SameoleJ

    Again......some parents allow it and their children are fine, some parents do not. Is it safe? Perhaps in their area it is. In this case, it was not. It is not a cut and dry case, he could have been coming from up the block to the house. Have they said where he was coming from? Clearly there was some level of comfortability for him to be alone. I grew up in a neighborhood where we could walk around and be okay, this may have been what his grandmother felt.

What's the first thing anybody does that doesn't have a car when they get some extra money? They gave her the money to help ease her pain. She can use it as she pleases! You judgemental ads people stop throwing rocks and spreading bullshit. She lost her son and people all in a rut because she bought a car? Grow up!

    What?! Her child has JUST been murdered and she has the wherewithal to be looking at and test driving rides? I can't even see the thought process, unless she wasn't a present mother.

    By the way, she could have taken that money and used it to pay for rent in a new neighbourhood if she was so scared.

  • EScrazy

    I do believe Tyshwn DEFINITELY KNEW who his killer(s) was(were) as a 9 year old you have enough sense to not talk to or walk with strangers. If he was lured into that alley he knew his killer, probably a friend of his fathers that he's seen with his dad all the time and didn't think twice about following him into the alley

  • BigMeanie

    The police have reported that they know who it is. They just need a bit of time to get to make sure all of the evidence has all of the t's crossed and i's dotted. It would do no good to arrest and have to let the person go because of a stupid error in the investigation.

  • BigMeanie

    If it is in fact a family member the police will probably not arrest them until after the funeral out of respect for the deceased, as long as they are not a flight risk or a danger to others, they are being watched closely.

  • SameoleJ

    So this was a normal routine for him, something he has done many times without incident, that she felt comfortable with him going and not worrying. Again, you cannot blame her, as they had a system and it had worked until this day, Truth be told, they would have found a way to grab him and I don't think the grandmother had any idea that he was potentially in danger. She had her grandchild and thought she had taken him out of harm's way. She has enough pain in her world, blaming her isn't going to help.

Bullying, murdering and terrorizing everyone and they get to keep walking around Free.

  • Noirluv45

    The reason people are focusing on what she did or didn't do is because that's the topic at hand. If a person sets up a fund and that money specifically goes to a certain cause then she had no right to use that money for her own selfish gains. We don't have control over what she did, but people are calling her out on how unscrupulous she is. Why wasn't she concerned about her baby's protection when he was alive? I have no respect for this woman.

  • SameoleJ

    We can dislike it all we want, but have no control over it. I get that this is the topic and people are discussing their feelings on it and this is mine. I don't know her to respect her as a person, but her actions are definitely not favorable. Because it was a fund in her name she had a right to do as she wished with the money, whether we like it or not. But yes, it was selfish and certainly not what people donated the money for. I just wish people would not mention her or the father any more, as apparently any attention is good attention to them.

    Agreed. The father is covering for her. Why can't people see they did this for money. There are crazy greedy parents these days who drive their kids into bodies of water to drown, lock them in freezers, and hide them in basements for years for insurance payofffs. So why can't people believe two desperate gang bangers who weren't even taking care of their child would do this. She's acting like she planned to profit off her child's death, not like a grieving parent. The police are watching her fake cry like yeah right and they know the father is covering for her.

    For one, Karla Lee didn't have custody of her son. The grandmother did. She also admitted in the four videos that she released on her ig that she spent the money on the car and she doesn't care about what the public thinks. She stated that her son would have wanted her to have the car and that she is scared. She isn't that scared because the funeral is still public not private. Its only one video that is being circulated but in fact it was four in total. By the time the media start reporting on misappropriated funds, she gave face to face interviews which she loves & stated that she didn't use the gofundme for the car. She said that she was already saving for a car. She stated on her fb on Oct 23rd that she can't wait til she get her new whip because it is stunt season and that she loves sugar daddies because they get you what you want. She got her face slashed in August by some girls. She constantly gets Dui's and is always on house arrest. The dad is fighting a gun charge in court as we are all typing. Also, the dad and 2 other individuals in September jumped on meaning a 3 on 1 fight with this dude from that was affiliated with another gang. That fight was on video & posted on fb but has been taken down of course lol. The dad was all in the comments section of the fight video dissing the opposing gang. How do I know all this stuff, their social media pages are public and people were screenshotting and reposting. Sometimes it is good to be nosey because the world since they both put us in their business can see what sorry parents they are and what scammers they both are. Its funny how the dad posted on fb that he had nothing to do with the gofundme page, but he made his own selling t'shirts. Really. Just sad. They both need to go somewhere & stay. The funeral and other free offering even hairstylists were offered to them. They took advantage of the public. Social media isnt all that bad because it help expose them and use their own words against them.

    I have to say, I believe it! I didn't think the parents had anything to do with it, but they surely knew who did it! But, after reading this thread, sadly, I believe this woman was somehow complicit in her son's death. Sociopaths walk amongst us all the time, I've seen them in my own family! The news recently reported that they're near making an arrest, for 50k and some change, I hope somebody is talking! She was fainting at the casket today, but the car purchase was a serious red flag! I knew something was up when the news reported she fainted when she found out, and then when she said I'm only 26, it just didn't sound right. Who lured the boy, someone he knew, perhaps? Even the Grandma's reaction, she's like let it go, God got this. Of course, she loved her grandson, but these parents would be my top suspects or persons of interest or unsubs, ok! I hope they soon find this poor child's killer!
