A MOTHER WHOSE six-year-old daughter was killed in the Aurora cinema massacre on 20 July – and who was critically injured herself – has suffered a miscarriage.

Ashley Moser’s family confirmed in a statement to local media yesterday that she is recovering from surgery but that the trauma had caused a miscarriage. The 25-year-old suffered wounds to the neck and abdomen in the shooting.

Moser’s daughter Veronica Moser-Sullivan was the youngest victim of the deadly attack, which occurred after midnight in the Colorado theatre during a showing of The Dark Knight Rises.

According to KKTV, plans to lay the young girl to rest are still pending.

Here is the full statement from the Moser family:

Ashley Moser is recovering from an additional surgery she had this morning. Tragically, the extreme trauma she sustained also caused a miscarriage.

We want to send a special thank you to the courageous HEROES of law enforcement, other first responders, paramedics, and doctors and nurses who have all gone beyond the call-of-duty in caring for our daughter, granddaughter and all of the other victims of this tragic event.

Our sincere appreciation goes out to all of those who have been sending well-wishes, prayers and good thoughts to Ashley. Her lifetime of care will be a long road. For those who wish to donate, please go to any Wells Fargo Bank and request the “Donation Account for Ashley and Veronica Moser”. This is the only official donation account for the family.

Funeral arrangements for Veronica are still pending.

Funeral masses for some of the 12 victims have been held this weekend across the US.
