Stacey Halstead regains control of her Facebook page

The mother of Tripp Halstead, the Jackson County toddler hit in the head by a falling tree limb at a Barrow County daycare center in 2012, now has the Facebook page she created for him back after hackers hijacked it for the better part of the past month.

1.2 million people have been following the family’s journey, including the sad saga of Tripp’s death in 2018 and how the family has dealt with its grief.

The hackers, who were making posts posing as Halstead, had demanded $5 thousand to give the Facebook page back to her. The state is investigating the hacking.
