Brooks’ family wants the fake pages taken down immediately, and one of his cousins, Decatur Redd, spoke with TMZ, revealing that he and his relatives have spotted a lot of fraudulent pages recently.

Decatur says that the development is a frustrating nuisance to the family as they have only given their approval to one GoFundMe account.
