Name: John Miller III.
Died: January 17, 2020.
Age at death: 30.
Cause of death: Neglect (Starvation, bedsores).
Location: Lansing, Michigan, USA.
John’s teachers at school remember him as a normal boy with Down syndrome and autistic traits. He was skinny, but could walk on his own. He had an older autistic sister.
John’s parents neglected him until one day his father called the police and explained that his son was dead. John’s body was found on his bed, extremely emaciated, dirty, and covered in bedsores. He had not seen a doctor in nine years, even though his parents knew perfectly well his health was failing. His death was ruled to be caregiver neglect.
