Died: January 14, 2006.
Age at death: 10.
Cause of death: Asphyxiation.

Bobby had Fragile X, which gave him autism-like traits. In happier times, Bobby visited his stepmother on her farm. He loved riding and grooming their pony, and smiled broadly as he rode on a tractor with her husband.

When Bobby moved away to a shack in the country with his mother and her boyfriend, his life became one of constant abuse. He died because his mother and her boyfriend stripped him naked and buried him in the snow, then took him back inside and put him in bed. There, he aspirated his vomit and died because he was too frozen to turn his head.
