From The Daily Mail:

The death of a special-needs Texas girl whose body weighing only 14lbs was found crammed inside a refrigerator in June has been ruled a homicide.

A medical examiner has determined that the primary cause of death of 9-year-old Ayahana Comb was a combination of malnutrition and dehydration.

By the time her 5-year-old sister found Ayahana’s body wrapped in a blanket inside a refrigerator drawer in the family’s apartment in Houston, the child had been dead for five months.

Comb had cerebral palsy, was wheelchair-bound and had to be bottle-fed.

A neighbor at the Happy Home Apartments in Houston, who was concerned that he hadn’t seen Ayahana in a few months, went to check on the family in June.

He found the front door unlocked and no one at home, so he went inside and discovered the little girl’s emaciated body in a refrigerator drawer.

But he was not the first to make the shocking discovery. According to investigators, Ayahana’s younger sister came upon her body earlier that month while looking for a cheese snack in the fridge.

According to KHOU, her mother Amber Keys told police that her daughter stopped breathing one night in January and although she tried CPR, she was unable to save her and then did not know what to do with the body.

This story angers me beyond words. The mother deserved to spend the rest of her life in jail, or receive the death penalty. I hope Ayahana is resting in heaven, and found the peace as an angel that she never received on Earth.
