On July 11th, young father, 26 year old Jevaughn Suckoo married to 24-year-old stephanie was shot and killed at the Renaissance Apartments, in West Palm Beach, Florida.
3 days later, his girlfriend Stephanie Caceres, 24, who was pregnant with their twins, gave birth to beautiful and healthy twins, Jevaughn Junior, and Lailah.
Stephanie on Facebook posted about the loss of her boyfriend the day after giving birth.
“I just don’t understand how someone can have the heart to leave three kids without a father especially two that never got the chance to even meet him,” she posted. “They didn’t deserve this! I’m trying I really am to stay strong but this has to be the toughest battle I’ve ever had to fight.”
"Just complete shock, completely devastated," said Joni Saunders, aunt of 26-year old , the man who was killed.
Saunders was joined on Thursday, by Irma Meza, mother of 24-year old Stephanie Caceres, the woman who died.
Saunders and Meza spoke at the doctor's office in Lake Clarke Shores, where Caceres worked.
The women said they were dealing with the sudden deaths of their loved ones, and the challenge now of caring for the couple's three small children.
"I think right now we're just very focused on the children, making sure that they're okay," said Saunders.
Saunders said the toddler adored her father.
"He walks into the room, and nobody else existed for her," said Saunders. "Same thing with Stephanie. She was such a dedicated mom."
At the doctor's office, diapers, formula and other items collected for the children, took up a large portion of a medical supply room.
A GoFundMe account was created for the children and over $98k have been raised for them. Plus, several people donated lots of baby food, diapers, clothers etc for the children and their upkeep.
Saunders and Meza said they are overwhelmed by the humane reactions from the community.
Police have yet to make any arrests in the shooting death of their father.
