The group which has begun calling themselves LOFEO (Looking Our For Each Other) will host their second informational meeting at St. Joseph Catholic Church Parish in Leitchfield at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, August 31.
The group was formed by area resident Clydean Cooper after the robbery of Dennis and Cindy Higdon’s home in Clarkson.
The Higdons’ home was burglarized during their murdered son’s funeral, after the date and time of the service was widely publicized.
The goal of LOFEO is to stop such particularly detestable thefts from happening again.
Cooper had the idea to organize background-checked volunteers to house sit the homes of families attending funerals. The idea has gained a great deal of backing from local law enforcement officers, area officials, state police, and a number of local homeowners.
The group held their first meeting on July 10, which was well-attended, according to Cooper, who hopes to soon be signing up volunteers and adding another layer of protection for Grayson County residents who have already suffered such a great loss.
