As of now, the family is mourning the death of 4 members of their family. The family told the press, “they are unfortunate and beyond devasted to lose their beloved Ross, Lauren, their daughter, and unborn son.” They added that their collective grief is unimaginable.
Lauren Hilty and Megan Hilty
Lauren’s sister Megan is so devasted about her loss that she has not been able to speak about it to the media.
Megan and Lauren were born and raised in Bellevue, Washington, by Jack Hilty (father) and Doona Hilty (mother). Additionally, they have one more sister Kristine Hilty. The sisters shared an extraordinary bond.
In 2019, Megan shared a post with her sisters and mother in Australia and captioned it as “We are fa-mi-ly. I got all my sisters (and my Mom & Dad) with me! I can’t believe in two days I’ll be singing at the Sydney Opera House!!!”
