“The entire Croft House team is deeply saddened by the devastating loss of our beloved team member,” they said.

Father blames crime on the rise

On Monday (local time), Ms Kupfer’s 60-year-old father, Todd Kupfer, criticized political leaders following his daughter’s death.

“Crime is really on the rise, and we have a lot of criminals on the streets who shouldn’t be coming out,” Kupfer told Fox News.

“We have a lot of politicians who somehow have forgotten the people and think that the key to getting elected is to support the lowest echelon of our society and give them rights and it’s sort of the answer to getting votes.”

Mr. Kupfer also paid tribute to his daughter.

“She was a caring soul and always tried to improve herself and make everything around her better, she cared about people,” he said.

“She was the kind of person we need on this Earth, she was strong and lively.”
