The description reads: By now most of you are aware of the tragedy that took place on Tuesday, May 19th, 2020. Erica Price was involved in an incident entirely out of her control and the results of that incident left Erica with injuries that needed immediate and ongoing medical treatment. Erica has a small child to support, as a single mother. She will likely accumulate a series of expensive medical bills, and at this point, it is unlikely she will return to work anytime soon. If you are able to help financially, I know she would be forever grateful. If you are unable to contribute financially, then please continue to send your prayer, as Erica has a long road of recovery ahead of her. 

The investigators, however, cannot find any motive behind Hagen’s attempted murder-suicide.

Hagen Mills was best known for appearing in the FX comedy-drama series, Baskets, created in 2016 by Zach Galifianakis and Louis CK. The Emmy-winning show ran for four seasons and starred Galifianakis the lead role.
