The sister of late cheerleader Tristyn Bailey, Britney Bailey, has spoken out amid the investigations into her death, saying that her sister’s name will continue to live on.
Following the horrific death of 13-year-old Tristyn Bailey, her sister Britney Bailey is speaking up about her lasting legacy. In a public Facebook post, Britney got candid about the pain of losing her sibling.
Britney began the lengthy statement, noting that although several people have asked the Bailey family what could be done to help, nothing could ever bring her beloved sister back to life.
Nevertheless, she understood that everyone else is grieving the loss of Tristyn alongside the family and would like to share with them a link to a GoFundMe account where they can make donations. She then wrote:
“We have decided with the money that is given, we are going to use it to make memorials for Tristyn. Her name WILL live on..."

Britney appreciated the public for the immense support for Tristyn and the rest of the family, describing it as “overwhelming.” She concluded, declaring her eternal love to her late sister.
A medical examiner ruled her death as a homicide, and a 14-year-old classmate of hers has been arrested.
The late Tristyn was declared missing early Sunday morning in her St. Johns, Florida residence. The Patriot Oaks Academy didn’t return home the previous night, and her family became worried.
Unfortunately, after an intense search mission by her family, friends, and community members, Tristyn’s body was found later that day in a wooded area. An autopsy confirmed that she died of “force trauma by stabbing.”
A medical examiner ruled her death as a homicide, and a 14-year-old classmate of hers has been arrested in connection with the killing. The teenage male has since been charged with second-degree murder.
According to reports, the suspect gave the police contradicting confessions and even admitted to being guilty. Also, some of his clothes obtained after a search of his home showed the presence of blood.
The suspect, whose name has been withheld because he is a minor, already had a preliminary hearing via Zoom on Tuesday, where the judge ordered that he be kept for 21 days until an order is given from the court.
