Friends Start Fundraising Effort for Mother of Murdered Chef Shawn Ostrom

A community is now rallying around the mother of murder victim Shawn Ostrom.

The Pfister Hotel Chef was fatally stabbed while intervening in an argument one of his friends was having near the Brady Street bar district over the weekend.

In the online post the fundraising organizers write: 

"On behalf of the many, many friends of our dear Shawn Ostrom, we are starting this account in memoriam. Not only to offset costs for his sudden and heartbreaking departure from this world, but also to continue the work that Shawn himself had already started. He was in the process of personally raising funds to help his mother with her upcoming surgery at the end of September.”

Those who knew the 32 year old victim gathered Tuesday night outside "Thurman's 15" on Pulaski and Arlington.

That's where he was attacked and found dead early Monday.

Two people are in custody, but no formal charges have been filed.
