LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – The victims of Friday’s double murder-suicide in Meade County will be laid to rest this week.
Forty-two-year-old Ellen Cain and her 13-year-old son, Tucker Wimpee, were killed inside their Brandenburg home. Police said Cain’s fiancé, Warren Tripp, killed the two and then himself.
Cain and Wimpee’s family said the visitation will be held Tuesday at Hager Funeral Home in Brandenburg and their funeral will take place Wednesday at the same location.
Donations to pay for their services are being accepted.
Tucker’s father is Meade County Sheriff’s Deputy Phillip Wimpee, who used to be married to Cain.
The family released a statement Phillip Wimpee wrote to his daughter about the deaths:
"To Denae, i love you sooo much. I need you to be strong for everyone i need you and julianne needs you. We are strong together with the help from family and community. We all need to remember there are more kids out there in bad situations that need us. We will find a way to help change that one tucker at a time.we decided to do the burial together because my hero tucker wanted to stay with his mother. Guess what he is happy now and he is with his mother. My heart goes out to the cain family for their loss, they are still part of our family. Remember this kids connect families together. So whoever reads this connect with your kids. Love, your dad"
