Amazing Loyalty! Fans have helped raise $28,500 for the tragic Wife Swap family the Stockdale's – to pay for killer Jacob Stockdale's medical costs.

He remains in a 'critical condition' in Cleveland MetroHealth Medical Center after a self-inflicted gun wound endured AFTER he blasted his mother Kathy Stockdale and brother James Stockdale to death.

Fans and church friends of the religious family - who appeared on ABC's Wife Swap back in 2008 - have raised the cash for medical bills in just over one week after the horror incident.

They are targeting $40,000 for the family who is holding a public memorial service for Kathy and James today at NewPointe Community Church in Dover.

Calvin Stockdale, the family's eldest son, revealed he's uncertain why Jacob took the lives of his mother and youngest brother.

He said: "I speak for our family when I say we love him and forgive him. The prayers and support for my family have been deeply appreciated, and we ask for continued prayers for Jacob's healing."

The Stockdale Family Band was well known in the area for playing bluegrass music as local festivals and concerts.
