Ok, more info on the death of Eowynne Anderson

Just a few days ago I wrote how I found out that Eowynne Anderson (abducted by her mom) was dead and had been for a long time, but I didn’t know any details. Now, thanks to my good friend Annie Keller, I do know a few:

Eowynne died in Madrid in Spain at the age of four, less than a year after she went missing. Natural causes: heart failure, of unknown etiology. (At least, unknown to her left-behind family at this point.) Her father and stepmother found out about this when they located her death certificate.

I’m glad that she at least was not murdered, and that she (apparently) didn’t die of some piddling medical thing that could have been fixed with proper attention, like Diana Alagha did. (See Annie’s comment here for details on that particular tragedy.)

Meanwhile, Eowynne’s siblings Gisselle and Giovanni are still missing.

    A 4yo doesn’t just up and die of heart failure out of the blue. That’s the kind of thing that builds over time. Maybe she had heart trouble from birth.

      I agree with you Princess Shantae. A four year old child doesn’t just die of a heart attack. There’s something fishy going on here?

        Probably not. Inexplicable heart failure is rare, but it does happen, even in children. Lately I’ve come across articles about teenage (or younger) athletes in top shape, dropping dead from some previously unknown heart condition. Just Google “heart failure in children” to learn about pediatric heart disease. It doesn’t have to be genetic or anything. A viral infection can cause heart failure. In fact I think that’s what happened to my dad a little over a year ago.

        He had never had heart trouble in his life, and then suddenly his heart just about quit on him. He was in the hospital for weeks, his heart functioning at like 20% capacity. They thought he would die. And then he got better, nearly as fast as he got sick, and just as inexplicably. His heart is now just as good as it was before, and the cardiologist is baffled.

        I agree heart failure in children is rare, but there are conditions. I’d still wonder anyway.

        Your father probably had myocarditis. The viral infection usually clears, but sometimes it develops into permanent damage, cardiomyopathy.

        They tested him for the usual suspect viruses at the hospital and he was negative. They diagnosed him with non-ischemic cardiomyopathy and left it at that.

    Hi……. I’m the step-mum. The Autopsy report claims she died of heart failure due to pulmonary hypertension. The Emergency Room report claims she was listless and lethargic for 4 days before “A FRIEND OF THE MOTHERS” brought her into the ER. They admitted her under a false name, ONLY 40 minutes before the time of death listed on the death certificate. Not murder? We don’t particularly agree. My 3 year old would be in the ER within hours of her becoming listless and lethargic. There was not a toxicology assay done at the time of the autopsy. There was a court case involved in her death. There were numerous requests by the maternal grandmother to have her body cremated. These were denied. Her mother gave Power Of Attorney to the grandmother and then disappeared. Eowynne was a healthy child before she was abducted. We are trying to get answers still……

      Hi Amber,

      There’s definitely something fishy going on. No child just dies of heart faliure. There’s nothing in the world that would stop me from finding out if something was physically wrong with my child. Eowynne’s mother is guilty of neglect for certain.
      If the children were in the US CPS would have never let anything happen to Eowynne or her brother or sister. But I guess we may never know exactly what happened to your step daughter. 😦

      How tragic . The whole saga is tragic. I hope the daddy is reunited with his other kids one day.
