    A Tennessee woman has told Suffolk authorities that the 14-year-old Amityville girl who died Sunday at a home there for troubled children was found by paramedics with scraped elbows, blood in her mouth, and in physical restraints when they arrived to try to resuscitate her.

    Her story contradicts what the home's officials have said about the girl's death as a probe continues to determine the cause.

    How awful Mysterview! It just incenses me to think about something like this, fighting for her life while in restraints. I hope they get to the bottom of this!

    Home-made cages are what foster parents use illegally .....while 4 point restraints are perfectly "humane" & legal and used at children's group homes.........go figure.

    Rayemonde, I just want to say I so appreciate your follow-ups on these older threads. These children mattered.

    Maybe I'm deluded but I believe that every time one "hears" their stories with compassion, their souls feel it like a prayer. I hope they can gain some small measure of the comfort they did not receive in life.

    I (and others, I'm sure) wouldn't be aware of many of their stories without your efforts. I think it must be hard-- and I KNOW that it takes great dedication.

    In my opinion you're one of the true heroes on Websleuths.
    :)

    I see the point of the lawsuits of the other teens. Honestly, for whatever reason she got that morbidly obese, a 5'6" person weighing 400 lbs., with asthma and cardiac hypertrophy could have dropped dead at any moment. I am sure how the staff dealt with her did not help her stress level. But her body was predisposed to a much shorter life span than average. That said, RIP Linda.

    Everyone of these teens deserved better and mattered, I don't care what the weight of one teen over the other even matters! Just applaud....
