Harry Aspley

Name: Harry Aspley.
Died: April 1, 2013.
Age at death: 23 months.
Cause of death: Abuse (Shaking).
Location: Stoney Stanton, England, UK.

Harry had a hard start in life, and it didn’t get any easier. At 20 months old, he was assaulted, presumably by his parents, and he was put into the care system. He was developmentally delayed, prone to tantrums, and being evaluated for autism.

Foster care should have been a safe place for Harry to recover. It was not.

Frustrated that Harry was throwing up after he ate, his foster mother shook him violently. This caused massive brain injuries, which she ignored, putting the dying toddler back into his crib. Emergency services weren’t called for two hours; by then, Harry was too far gone to save. He died aged 23 months.
