If a child dies a "natural death", why would the foster mother claim she didn't know where she was and put her in a garbage bag? That makes NO sense at all.

"The police had described Ms. Johnson's home as covered with bags of clothing and clumps of hair. They also said Stephanie's feeding tube was caked with grime. "

and what a horrible place to be a foster home where children are supposed to be sheltered from abuse and neglect. i hope the childrens department thinks twice about her, although i'm sure she's been "inspected" before....

What a terrible story! This woman should be held accountable for her actions. Why are they not doing more knowing this child was living in filthy conditions, not being cared for and thrown in the trash? The autoposy couldn't determine cause of death so how can it be of natural causes? What about the other foster children she has? I am sick, what is wrong with people?
