Died: June 28, 2016.
Age at death: 9.
Cause of death: Neglect (Starvation).
Location: Hilo, Hawaii, USA.

Details:
After her father assaulted her mother, Shaelynn was removed from their home, but was returned to her grandmother’s custody. Since her grandmother lived with her parents, that was as good as returning her to her parents.

In the year before her death, Shaelynn was taken out of school. Her parents starved and deprived her of water and medical attention. Although she was noted to be malnourished by the state, she stayed with them until she died of malnutrition and pneumonia.

Shaelynn’s 13-year-old brother and 11-year-old sister were removed from the home and are recovering.
