    Head injury, according to the Nottingham Post article.

    Was the girl living with her aunt?
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    From June 2015:

    http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2...nt-grandmother

    The court heard that both Morris and Shanay’s grandmother, Juanila Smikle, 53, manipulated social workers into believing that the girl’s injuries were accidental after teachers raised the alarm...

    Jailing Morris for eight years and Smikle for four years, the judge Mr Justice MacDuff said the pair were guilty of a “most wicked betrayal of trust.” He said the jury had acquitted Morris of murdering Shanay because they could not be sure that the churchgoing 24-year-old delivered the fatal blow...

    “You tried to break her like a wild horse by punishing her severely every time you perceived her to be misbehaving. But she refused to be broken. When you beat her, she stood up to you and you could not bear that she refused to be cowed. These matters went on over those two years, causing this little girl untold misery.”
