Twenty-one-year-old Brittany Johnson-Webster from Illinois was shocked to hear that people in Ferguson, Missouri gathered for a memorial service that was held for her after her mother faked her death to scam people and collect monetary donations.
Revealing that she heard of the news from her aunt, in an interview with KDSK, the 21-year-old, said, "They had pictures of me blown up into posters that said rest in peace Brittany." Her mother who has remained unnamed claimed that Brittany passed away in a car crash on October 27 and she then went on to accept donations to have a memorial service for her.
'Brittany finished her story on October 27, 2018. She was called to meet all the loving animal babies on the other side of the rainbow,' her obituary read.
Brittany who was raised by her grandparents said, "I was kind of stunned. It was a whole rush of emotions." She went on to add that her mother's actions had taken a toll on her especially since her brother had passed away. "My brother actually died and here my mom is faking my death. You know I was upset, I was angry, but more than anything, I was sad," she continued.
It was revealed that her mother had a full-fledged memorial service for her daughter, with speeches about her life and repass at the Ferguson Heights Church of Christ. The service was funded by the donations people had given her mother and Brittany went ahead and apologized to everyone who had been duped because of her mother.
"I apologize for her actions. It's messed up, but she ended up scamming you guys out of some money, you know just trying to make you feel bad. She claimed I died in a car accident and the next day someone had pulled out in front of me and I slammed on my brake and spun out three times, and all I could think was I'm going to die, my mom's speaking my death into existence," the 21-year-old said.
She doubts that her mother who is a drug addict would have created this scam to get money. She sent her mother a message but has not heard back till date. The Illinois resident revealed that she is worried about her mother's safety after her scam.
