MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

The Colquitt County community continues to display an outpouring of love for the five victims found dead inside of a house Sunday.

Alicia Norman was just days away from becoming a manager at Advance Auto Parts in Moultrie and employees at that store collected donations for Norman's family to help cover funeral costs.

People from different states also donated.

Delivery man Ed Stripland said this level of support is something expected in a close-knit community like Moultrie.

"Having to deal with money at a time like this is not something anyone wants to think about, but it does have to be handled," said Stripland. "And if we do anything to help them not have to worry about money, it would be a wonderful thing."
