3-year-old girl

Name Unknown.
Died: February 10, 2018.
Age at death: 3.
Cause of death: Murder (Suffocated).
Location: Dublin, Ireland.

Details:
When this toddler girl attended a Montessori school, and the principal noticed that her behavior was different and told her mother that she ought to have an assessment. At the assessment, she was given a diagnosis of borderline-to-mild autism, but her mother was convinced that she had severe autism with pathological demand avoidance. She thought her daughter would never get the right services and it would ruin her other child’s life.

Her mother suffocated her with a Minnie Mouse pillow; she died three days later in the hospital.
