Families Fighting Rules for Colo. Victims Fund
Family members of some of the people killed in the Colorado theater shooting are still concerned that money collected by a fundraising campaign is not getting to the victims.
Representatives say that after three meetings of a financial oversight committee, they believe the money is not going to be given to victims in a timely manner. They plan to air their concerns Thursday.
Some families say the campaign collected more than $5 million using the victims' names and images but gave no more than $5,000 each to families facing expenses including medical bills.
The 7/20 Recovery Committee responded late Wednesday that it's committed to honoring the input of all victims, not just the voices of a few.
Twelve people were killed and 58 were wounded in the July 20 shooting.
