Botham Jean and Atatiana Jefferson were both murdered by Dallas-Fort Worth officers in their own homes.

Two years apart, the deaths tragically mirror each other. Jean, 28, was killed on September 6 last year and Jefferson, 28, was shot and killed on October 12.

The foundation created by Jean’s family is offering support in the form of a donation to the Jefferson family as they grieve the loss of Atatiana.

“Losing a family member is hard in any circumstance,” Allisa Findley, Jean’s sister wrote in an letter to Jefferson’s family, per CNN. “Having a loved one taken in this horrific manner is one far more traumatic and a pain no family should have to bear. Unfortunately, too many families have had to suffer at the hands of those paid to serve and protect us.”

The amount has not been specified.

As we reported, a neighbor called the police to do a welfare check around 2:30 am on Saturday because Jefferson’s front door was left open. Police said the officer saw someone near a window inside the home and drew his duty weapon and fired after “perceiving a threat.”
