This whole situation just sucks. Katelynn Sampson’s mother, Bernise, was having some kind of personal problems which aren’t being explained. So, she let her friend, Donna Irving, take custody of her daughter. Irving had a violent past that Sampson apparently didn’t know about. Now, Katelynn’s dead, and it looks like she had been abused for quite some time.
This makes me sad for the same reason that old story about the kid being confined to a dryer made Matt sad. She was put in Irving’s care so she would be safe, and in the end, she wasn’t, and probably lived a miserable life.
I don’t really have any more words. I just hope they figure out what the hell happened to her. Apparently her autopsy is taking longer than expected because of “the complicated nature of her injuries”. That’s not good. What a horrible tragedy.
