“I’d like to know why.. and I’d like to know who..” Emmett’s aunt Karen Oliver-Thomas said. “It’s just tough for us and we’re trying to make sense of everything.”
Emmett’s aunt said in his short 37 years, he accomplished a lot.

“He was a great dad of two beautiful girls. A 2-year-old and 3-year-old and they love their dad. They loved their dad.” Oliver-Thomas said.
