A spokesperson for the Jared and Heidi Nunes Tucker family issued a statement: "At present Jared's wife Heidi is not issuing a statement and will issue a formal statement tomorrow. For now, she asks that the community and media hold their family up in prayer and asks for the privacy during this difficult time."
