Died: March 19, 2022.
Age at death: 19.
Cause of death: Homicide-suicide (Shooting).

Details:
Katie’s friends remember her as a kind young woman who was always smiling, even when life became difficult. She was proud of her Filipino heritage. She played Minecraft and UberSpire, and, as a trans woman, was an advocate for trans rights. She enjoyed hiking and sightseeing. Her motto was, “Model best behavior in your own sphere, break down stereotypes, and speak out.”

When she was sixteen, Katie’s father had been arrested and charged for holding her down on her bed by her throat; but the charges were dropped. When she was nineteen, Katie’s father shot her, and then killed himself.

Brieuc Paquet

Name: Brieuc Paquet.
Died: February 18, 2022.
Age at death: 16.
Cause of death: Homicide-suicide (Gunshot).
Location: Beaufays, Liège, Belgium.

Details:
Brieuc’s father shot him with his hunting rifle, then killed himself. Brieuc’s mother found their bodies.

Editor’s note: Like Katie McCarron’s mother, Brieuc’s father was a doctor. One wonders whether they paid attention in medical school when they were taught, “First, do no harm.” His patients seem to be fine with it, though; reportedly, they still remember him as a wonderful doctor.
