Rob Russo, Wendy Fisher’s boyfriend, testified that he saw Washington point the gun at him.

Russo said, “For the longest time, you blame yourself. The gun was pointed at me. Were those bullets meant for me? And, you question your role in the whole situation and what you could have done differently. You go over it a hundred different times. What you could have been done differently to stop the whole event from happening?”

Since her daughter’s death, Carol Fisher has moved forward with her life and her ministry.

As part of Carol Fisher Ministries, she recently bought 38 pairs of new shoes for students at Foley Middle School.

So, why shoes?

”We’re giving them shoes, because we want them to feel good about themselves. And when you dress good, and you have good shoes and good clothes, you feel good about yourself.”
