Summary This KXAN Investigation led them across state lines to track down a suspect in a case of money missing from a crowd funding account supposedly set up to help a family who had lost a loved one. When law enforcement failed to do anything to find the suspect, KXAN went to work. After they found the now admitted thief, law enforcement finally arrested her and extradited her to Williamson County, Texas to face criminal charges.
