SALT LAKE CITY -- A woman who lost her husband in the Trolley Square shootings has become a victim again. She's filing a lawsuit over a quarter-million dollar scam.

Vickie Walker's husband was killed when Sulejmen Talovic went on a shooting rampage at Trolley Square in 2007. She received $250,000 in life insurance benefits.

Not long after, she was approached by a person at her church about an investment opportunity that would help her keep her home.

Now, Walker has filed a federal lawsuit saying the money she invested is gone and the defendants threatened to file bankruptcy if she went to court over the loss.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports Walker invested the money thinking it was going to a storage unit development in Montana where and she would receive 12 percent interest annually. Instead, she says some of the money was used on property in Herriman.

The man named in the suit has not commented, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

Walker's husband Jeffery was one of five people killed in the 2007 massacre at Trolley Square. Her son A.J. was also injured in the shootiong.
