An online fundraiser set up to help pay for medical bills of a woman injured in a double-stabbing in Pioneer Square has raised nearly $7,000, as of Wednesday night. The other victim, Shoreline Community College professor Troy Wolff, 46, died from his injuries.
The woman, Kristin Ito, 30, wrote a note Wednesday on the site thanking contributors:
I am overwhelmed by all of the support and kindness you have shown my family and me during this difficult time. Your generosity and warm thoughts have given me strength and comfort.
My physical wounds are healing, and your assistance will greatly help alleviate the medical costs. I am slowly working on my emotional wounds. It’s easy to feel darkness in times like these, but you have shown me that there are so many good people in this world. Thank you so much for this.
I miss Troy dearly and will be forever grateful to him. He will always be in my heart, and I’m comforted by all of our happy memories together.
Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart.
Police said the Sept. 13 attack was unprovoked, and a King County judge has set the bail for the 44-year-old assailant at $2 million.
