Her father, Stephen, was the sole heir of a famous Jewish family with Irish roots. Likewise, her mother, Audrey, was also the heir to the great inheritance of the Bruce and Mellon family.
Despite both of her parents being from wealthy and influential families, her mother had more money than her father. It created problems among their family, so they eloped and got married.
After marrying, both of her parents continued their philanthropic works in many places. They had to travel a lot for their work and did not spend much time with their children.

Despite losing her parents and brother, Andrea never changed her views or her act of kindness. Instead, she worked harder for the people and the environment around her.

Kinloch Farm Murder
In 1981, the young manager of the Kinloch farm, Brad Baker, was shot and left to bleed for hours by Ronald Richard Cloud. The dispute started when Baker fired Cloud’s stepfather James Ellen.
The case was still a mystery even after more than three decades of the murder. However, in 1995 Cloud’s brother-in-law tipped the office of Loudoun County Sheriff about the murder. Despite the tip, the case was still cold until Cloud’s younger brother confessed about witnessing the murder in front of the grand jury in 2012.
The same year, a special investigator also got a confession from Ronald Cloud, who was already serving a life sentence on charges of abduction and rape.
With witnesses and confessions, Cloud was charged formally for the murder of Baker in 2013. He pleaded guilty instead of going for a trial.
The court charged Cloud with first-degree murder. During the whole judiciary process, Cloud confessed that his initial intent was to talk to Baker and not kill him. He also shared that he wanted to apologize to the family of Baker for the misfortune. The cold case of the Kinloch farm finally got solved after thirty-two years of the actual murder.
