The Blair County community came together over the weekend to help out an Altoona family who lost their 3-year-old son in a tragic November fire.
A benefit for the Etchison family was held Saturday night at the Blair County Convention Center. Darrel Etchison Junior died when an arsonist burned the family’s Altoona home. Several local bands and entertainment groups participated in the community fundraiser.
Aaron Dishong was accused of setting that fire in an attempt to kill an ex-girlfriend who he thought was living there.
Dishong was facing homicide and arson charges when he took his own life while in prison.
