Name: Dylan Freeman.
Died: August 16, 2020.
Age at death: 10.
Cause of death: Homicide (Asphyxia).
Location: Acton, London, England, UK.
Dylan was born into a well-to-do family. His father was a celebrity photographer who, after the couple divorced, stayed fully involved in Dylan’s life.
Dylan, who was born with Cohen syndrome, used a wheelchair and communicated by making noises. His neighbors remember seeing him go to school in a specially adapted van.
Dylan’s father says, “Dylan was a beautiful, bright, inquisitive and artistic child who loved to travel, visit art galleries and swim.” He often took his son on vacation overseas.
Dylan’s mother killed him by drugging him and suffocating him with a sponge. She pleaded guilty to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility and was hospitalized indefinitely.
