Pearson’s children, Demi 15, Brandon, 8, Lacie, 7, and Lia, 3, were all asleep when the fire started. Tragically, they never made it out of the house.
Pearson managed to escape, but she suffered burns covering 75 percent of her body in the process. Her injuries were so extreme that so was unable to attend her children’s funeral.
This was an unspeakable crime committed by absolute evil-hearted men who were later found guilty of murder.
Michelle fought valiantly for nearly two years after the fire. We can only pray that this mom is at peace with her children now.
