A GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for families of 3 missing men raised $30K in Minnesota; the woman who started the campaign was accused of pocketing a lot of the money. 

"Retina LaValla swallowed a handful of her father’s painkillers when the law caught up to her.

"Lake of the Woods County, Minnesota, charged LaValla with a pair of theft felonies for turning a $30,000 GoFundMe campaign for three drowned men into her personal piggy bank. As deputies read her rights to her, LaValla started fading from the overdose and was put on a helicopter to a hospital where medics revived her."--M.L. Nestel, The Daily Beast
