A psychic who runs a custom coffin business has promised to donate caskets to victims of the Texas school shooting, each decorated specifically for each child who was murdered.
Trey Ganem owns SoulShine Industries, which will provide coffins for 19 victims of Tuesday’s shooting in Uvalde, where 18-year-old Salvador Ramos killed 19 students and two teachers at Robb Elementary School.
Ganem, 50, told the New York Post that he is covering the cost of the coffins (which usually cost about $3,400 (£2,692) each) after meeting with the families of 19 of the victims – 18 students and a teacher.
The designs he features on the coffins include dinosaurs, butterflies, and scenes from popular TikTok videos.
“I got a call from some people who needed boxes urgently and I was really torn up about the whole thing, so I decided to help,” said Ganem, the star of a US reality show called Trey the Texas Medium.
“We started work on the caskets on Friday and we painted eight of them. We’re still talking to the families as we speak, and they’re in the funeral homes going through and looking at examples.”
Ganem makes the custom coffins for 17 children as well as fourth grade teacher Eva Mireles.
He claims to regularly communicate with the deceased while working on coffins, including victims of Tuesday’s shooting, though he declined to elaborate.
“It helps me make the caskets,” he said. “It was a beautiful thing for me to hear all of their stories,” he said. “I feel like I’ve become a part of her family.”
Ramos shot his own grandmother dead before going to nearby Robb Primary School in Uvalde, where he massacred innocent staff and children between the ages of nine and eleven.
He had posted a warning on Facebook 15 minutes before the opening fire that he was “going to shoot at an elementary school.”
The 18-year-old, armed with an AR-15, began the killing spree after barricading himself in a fourth-grade classroom. He was eventually killed by a police tactical unit.
It was the deadliest school shooting since the eerily similar Sandy Hook massacre almost a decade ago, in which 20-year-old Adam Lanza first killed his mother before killing 26 people.
A police officer said on Friday that police, who waited at least 40 minutes for reinforcements before entering the classroom, made the “wrong decision”.
The incident has shocked the world and prompted renewed calls for a review of gun laws.
