Erica Parsons autopsy results released

The authorities have released the results of Erica Parsons’s autopsy. There are several articles available about this, but this link actually includes the autopsy report itself.

In a nutshell: because they were working with skeletal remains and several bones were missing, they were unable to determine the precise cause of death, but this was obviously a homicide and indications are that Erica suffered horribly before dying.

To go into more detail: Erica had one tooth that had been knocked out, and another was cracked. She had fractures to her nasal bones, nine rib fractures, one arm fracture and a finger fracture. The fractures were mostly in various stages of healing, but there were four unhealed fractures to her spine and one unhealed rib fracture. This is suggestive of “multiple blunt force injuries over a prolonged period.”

There was also “low bone mineral density” and “growth deficit” suggestive of malnutrition.

The autopsy report notes that, “In the week prior to her 2011 disappearance, siblings described her as looking gray with sunken eyes, smelling bad with open, oozing cuts, very weak and complaining of not being able to breathe.”

I wouldn’t be surprised if Erica, like Peter Kema, died after her poor battered body got an infection she wasn’t able to fight. And of course her so-called family didn’t bother to ever take her to the doctor.

This kid was tortured. And we all know who did it, but no one has been charged in her death.

    Her mother bears some blame for this. She could have turned her over to a more qualified adoption agency. So now her daughter is dead, and was abused by her extended family.

      I don’t blame the mother for this at all. She was trying to give her kid a better life. And of course now she’s bitterly regretting having placed her for adoption at all. This is a birth parent’s worst nightmare.

    One of the things that breaks my heart in these cases is how the foster or adoptive parents often are prosecuted for the financial crimes that are associated with the child’s death, but not for the death or abuse itself. I know that this is because there is more evidence of the financial crimes, but still…

      Kind of like getting Al Capone on tax evasion. Jail is jail, I guess. But I hope they never get out.

    This is so heart breaking. How could so many people in this child’s life be so evil. I hate this case.

      A combination of evil and apathy. There were so many people who could have saved Erica’s life and didn’t.

        Apathy can be evil, IMO

    Wow, I was just thinking of Erica the other day out of the blue. May she rest in peace.

      She never had any peace in this life sadly.
