    Well, I assumed that could be what caused the damage to her throat but I'm no expert, either. It could also be due to a procedure done at the hospital.

    They also say the dark liquid in the stomach was from the candy, but we would have to read the actual autopsy report for more specific details.

    It seems like she would have had to ingest a LOT of that candy for it to:
    cause choking
    be vomited up/leak from mouth
    and still be present in stomach contents

    Seeing the actual autopsy reports/sketches would help to clear up many of these questions, IMO

    Exactly! That was brought up earlier last year while discussing this case. And suddenly the story changed to " Evanna ate a lot of candy" and most recently the family stated, " she was stuffing her face". The story changes continuously, to rebut any common sense thrown their way.

    We won't be seeing the full autopsy report, and the family surely is not going to release that. I can only imagine what is truly in that report.

    Unfortunately, we will only see what the family cherry picks and crops from the reports. If it doesn’t fit their narrative, it won’t be made public by them. Imo

    MOO. Something is very wrong with this family. According to their own facebook page, from 2012 to 2014 all the children were removed from Heidi and Steve's care and placed in foster care for 2 years because of a child abuse/neglect allegation in Mass. And in 2007/2008, they were all removed and placed in foster care in Mass? How long were they in foster care that time? So..... at least two times since 2007 people have been concerned enough about this family to call in a CPS report and despite what this family posts on their facebook page.... a 12 year old died? How many people do you know that have at least two cps cases against them from another state and within a few years a child dies? Something is very wrong with this family. MOO

    they talk about it on some of the first posts on the page they talk about all the run ins with cps and how all the removals weren't their fault and the run ins were normal for a large family

    There are several posts and comments about previous cases on their FB from last December. They also included an article that was written by their attorney in one of the cases in the comment section. They say all the cases were dismissed. It's a lot to read but they go into detail about their side of the story.

    Dec 28, 2019 Tranberg-Bennett Family FB page. There were 4 previous cases, two were said to involve someone calling DSS to get them evicted, one a case of someone calling DSS on them to get revenge on someone else...or something like that, and the fourth when a child fainted in a grocery store and was taken to ER. Take it all with a grain of salt. And now their fifth case in NY.

    When it comes to your health, when you go to the doctor, you ask about what’s going on, you ask the doctor to explain whatever is happening and what the next steps are.

    They only seem to question when there’s no use. Why didn’t they have any questions when Evanna was showing symptoms and suffering for who knows how long? I can totally relate with searching on Google when I get unwell, but if it persists then it’s doctor time, which means, a visit to a real doctor.
    Why were they peeping on Xrays at the hospital? How about... just asking? They were probably too busy yelling about how the other kids couldn’t be vaccinated. While a child was dying.

    If this happened when COVID already hit I could somewhat understand them delaying taking her to the hospital if they were concerned about COVID exposure, but I’m talking about a day or two, not weeks. But it was CLEARLY an emergency, you don’t worry about anything else when you have a child that needs urgent medical care.

    It honestly breaks my heart to even think about what her last weeks in that house were like.

    Has anyone questioned why, since they pop up EVERYWHERE else with their vast volumes of "rebuttal", the family has not appeared here on WS?

    According to the family, they were escorted out of the hospital. I have some ideas as to why, but I can come up with one that I saw enough of myself while working in the hospital. That is..A family became Disruptive.

    I can see that very situation happening in poor Evanna's story.
    Obviously, we have only heard the T-B version of events, which glaringly portrays DSS, EMS as the villains.

    IMO, the family became disruptive when DSS was called in and began their questions and investigation. Instead of being cooperative and loving parents (and family), they chose the verbally combative and disruptive route. This was the 5th time that they were under the microscope, and their daughter lay dying. This was serious ****! IMO, the family went into 'defense mode' fairly quick and accusations against all others began . It got ugly there, no doubt.

    Shortly thereafter the social media defense I have entitled " We are the victims" was enacted (thanks to Venuska), and we all 'heard' the one sided ( ever changing) story. And we ain't buyin' it

    All IMOO

    It's my understanding that VTB was invited to become a verified insider at WS but she declined.

    There are many comments about that on their FB page, posted on November 13.

    It seems to be yet another example of their inability or refusal to follow rules. Then when there are consequences for their actions, they retaliate by pointing the finger in other directions, making accusations and threatening to sue for defamation.

    It seems to be a pattern for them.

    IMO VTB while here didn't like to follow the rules. The rules are set up for the safety of everyone.

    Are there new posts from the family?
    It has been too quiet.

    My own musings regarding the quiet:
    Could it be the T-B Family has finally been told to stop? And listened to advice? Or, I wonder if they were 'slapped' with additional charges of defamation of character ?
    There was an awful lot of that going on in their postings, IMO.

    It is actually nice not to have the almost daily nonsense to read.

    IMO you're right on the money. The autopsy reports likely explain the circumstances leading to Evanna's death as opposed to a few cherry picked blurbs. The pathology findings have little meaning if no context is given. For example, one screen shot they posted notes that Evanna's labia were swollen and edematous. Is that significant? Without knowing the circumstances it's difficult to read anything definite into the findings. IMO.

    For that matter what if Venuska herself caused chest trauma to Evanna while performing CPR before the EMTs ever arrived? Why haven't they produced evidence that Evanna had the broken ribs, punctured lungs and "massive" internal bleeding they keep insisting the EMTs caused?

    In some cases involving a child's death LE and DSS/CPS release various reports, including the 911 call and prior involvement with DSS. I don't know how Evanna's case will proceed but if the adults do end up going to trial we may get to see the real documents in their entirety. In the meantime what the family posts IMO should be taken with a very large grain of salt. MOO.
