(KMOV) - She was shot and killed during an attempted robbery 10 years ago this August. Since then, the family of then 18 year old Katee Hessler has raised more than a hundred thousand dollars to help stop crime around the St. Louis area.
Sarah Hessler will never forget the night her little sister Katee was shot and killed in Kinloch. She says, "It was the most awful experience that I have ever gone through." A murder that ruined the lives of this Wentzville family forever. Mother Debee Hessler says, "the past 10 years have been hard just trying to learn how to function again."
