KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A metro mom who lost her son to homicide is fighting to help other mothers in her shoes.
Michelle Metje's son Corey Laykovich was stabbed while walking home in 2013. There still have been no arrests in his case.
Michelle felt lost when her son died, with no money to bury him. So she created Corey's Network, which raises money for the families of homicide victims to help them with funeral costs.
Corey's Network hosted a silent auction Saturday night. With help from local businesses, Michelle will be able to help twenty families pay for funeral next year.
"He would be proud that I didn't just stop living when he did. That I continued to grow and try and help other people, because was a very altruistic kid. He would give the shirt off his back if he could. I think this in particular is exactly what he would've done," Michelle Metje said.
