Matthew Graville

MAZOMANIE, Wis. -

Loved ones of Matthew Graville are continuing to keep his memory alive.

The 27-year-old was killed recently, with his half-brother charged in the murder.

Graville's stepmother and another man were in court this week on charges of hiding his body.

A Facebook page has now been created in Graville's honor.

The page shares more of his story.

Graville had Asperger’s Syndrome and lived with foster families while growing up.

The site says he wanted to know his half-brother and biological father, even if that meant being mistreated and taken advantage of.

The page is taking donations in memory of Graville, with all proceeds going to The Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin.

The fund has been set up through Summit Credit Union.

Contributions may be sent to:

Summit Credit Union
P.O. Box 8046
Madison, WI 53708

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
