Age at death: 39
Cause of death: Suffocation during restraint
Location: Brantford, Ontario, Canada
Wayne Winter loved birds. He spent much of his time drawing birds and could name any bird on sight. He had a job in the mornings, making grab bags for a dollar store. His sister Tracey would often visit him at the group home where he lived; they shared a love of art, and would draw birds together.
On the day he died, Wayne had a meltdown, and staff restrained him. During the restraint, with three staff members piled on top of him, Wayne stopped breathing and died.
