Aidan Lindsey

Age 6

Orlando, Florida

He never got out of bed

His favorite thing was when his father would let him play video games. His mother would dress him in pajamas and tuck him in.

He was 7 months old when his mother dropped him while being threatened by his father with a knife. In 2017, his mother attempted to file a restraining order against his father.

Aidan Lindsey, 6, was shot and killed in his bed by his father on June 11, 2018, in Orlando, Florida. His sister, half-brother and half-sister also were shot and killed by Aidan’s father after a 21-hour standoff with police.
