Her son, 52 year old Kenny Hamner, has been charged in her murder.
I live in the same city where this happened [Fort Pierce/White City, Fl]
I did not know Kenny Hamner personally but have seen him before as my childhood friend's parents were friends with him and he would sometimes be at their house while I was there.
He was known and liked by MANY people in this area, he was a singer for a few different local 'country-rock' bands.
I honestly had a gut feeling from the start he had most likely done it as his story just didn't make sense.
It's sickening he could attack his own mother with a machete, inflict wounds on himself, make up the story and even attend his mother's funeral and according to those who attended, he "put on a good show" with seeming emotional/upset.

There was even a gofundme set up for him and many of his friends and family donated, and it was at $6,7OO, but it seems to have been deleted now. I wonder if they will get their money back?
