BROOKE COUNTY, W.Va. --

A juvenile allegedly went to homes in Brooke County trying to sell candles to falsely collect money for the Mozingo family.

The family's home was destroyed and the family's youngest daughter was killed by an apparent gas explosion earlier this month.

The sheriff said the juvenile told people he was related to the Mozingos and tried to sell candles for $20. The sheriff said he's not sure if the juvenile got away with selling many, if any, candles.

The issue will be taken over by juvenile authorities and Child Protective Services has been alerted, the sheriff said.
