On the morning of October 8th, 23-year-old Anthony ‘Tony’ Aust fell to his death after a unit of heavily armed SWAT officers raided his family home. The officers were dressed in full tactical gear and they used smoke grenades and excessive force to conduct their careless, no-knock search. Anthony’s younger brother and sister, as well as his 94-year-old grandmother, were also in the apartment at the time.
While the circumstances surrounding Anthony’s death are still pending investigation, this fundraiser has been started to help his family cover the pertinent funeral costs. We are asking for $12,000 in donations so that the Aust family may afford a funeral service and associated legal and medical costs.
Anthony was a beloved son and a devoted brother, and he will be greatly missed by friends and family alike. He is survived by his brothers Raymond and Benjamin, his sister Paloma, and mother Nhora.￼ (Updated info for gofundme staff)
My name is Joey King and I am a friend of the family. I have been authorized by them to withdraw the donations in ord er to transfer them outside of the gofundme platform.
