Name: Daniel "Danny" Leubner
Died: September 4, 1999
Age at death: 13
Cause of death: Smoke inhalation during a fire
Location: Auburn, New York, USA
Danny was the only one in the house, with his mother and sister on the front porch, when the house was engulfed in flames. Danny died from smoke inhalation. His mother confessed to the crime and was sentenced to six years, escaping a possible maximum sentence of twenty-five years by claiming that thirteen-year-old Danny had raped her.
Danny's father, who is outraged at his ex-wife's allegations of rape, is still fighting for justice for Danny.
