    From above link:

    "Parents of a teenaged boy found dead and extremely emaciated were arrested Tuesday and are facing first-degree murder charges.

    An autopsy on the 15-year-old, Alexandru Radita, was done the next day, but more tests were required.

    It was later determined the boy died of bacterial sepsis (Staphyloccus Aureus) from complications of neglect and starvation, due to Type 1 diabetes, say cops.

    Police confirm the teen had been diagnosed with diabetes years earlier, prior to moving to Alberta from B.C. — where his family had contact with police and Child and Family Services — and they allege his parents failed to provide him with the necessary treatment."

    They shut him up in his room to die :( That is just horrendous. LE said they don't know the motive, but it doesn't seem to be religious convictions against medication.

    I just can't imagine his suffering.
    As a parent to a child dx t1d as a toddler I don't understand how the parents watched him waste away. Poor guy:(

    My son is a Type 1, diagnosed 5 years ago when he was 4. This just sickens me. One article said they only tested his blood sugar once a month. Then there is a picture of dozens of test strip bottles. It doesn't make sense. This is just too heart breaking.

    These parents should be locked up and the key thrown away - and that would be too kind. I can't say what I really feel and want for them.

    There is NOTHING more despicable and vile than cases like Alex's. The poor, sweet boy. Surely he is in a better place than the hell on earth that he did not deserve.

    Thankfully this was the only kid they had. He was, wasn't he? So tragic.
