Charlotte Holliman - 1992

In 1992 tragedy happened at what was called Truckee Meadows Hospital at the time. An only 14-year-old girl was found hanging at the hospital. She was treated with anti-depressive and something clearly went wrong with either the dosis or the risk-management of possible side-effects that can impact the person who have to take the medicine.

This lack of care not only robbed this 14-year-old girl of a future. Also relatives were left behind and had to deal with their terrible loss. The hospital changed its name to do something about its poor reputation but it not to read anywhere if other precautions were made to prevent similar tragedies from happening.

May she find peace where she is now.

Naomi Massa Wood - 2020

Naomi Massa Wood was 17 year of age when her life ended while attending one of the Teen Challenge holding facilties which are marketed as a mixure of boarding schools and treatment faclities. Facilities where medication and treatment by professionals are replaced with a prayer based curriculum and the communication and interaction with the surrounding world is restricted.

When the 17 year old student complained of plain not enough effort was made to contact local medical services and at the facility medical trained personnel was not at hand. As result of this institutionalized neglect the girl died. A report was made which ordered changed which seem to happen slowly and in the meantime family members of employees were allowed to play medical professionals.

It was a tragic for the family left behind who had put so much effort into giving this girl a good life. What a terrible loss of lives for the many siblings and also the adoptive parents, who were led to believe that Teen Challenge had something to offer to their daughter.

We can only urge the responsible politicians to look at the legislation so such places become better licensed and subject to supervision by the state.

May Naomi Massa Wood who were given so little time on this earth experience peace where she is now.

Adora Grae Stout - 2000

17-year-old Adora Grae Stout died at the Buffalo Mountain Camp January 8, 2000. The camp was a kind of boot camp controlled by a company called OmniVisions

The circumstances that brought her there is unclear as years have passed and not that much media coverage exist about this tragic death.

What is clear is that a family lost one of their relatives and a 17-year-old girl did not get to live a full life

May she find peace where she is now.

Rylan Harris - 2020

13-year-old Rylan Harris was found dead in the Arkansas River after he ran away with other boys at his age from a group home. The reason for his escape attempt is not known nor is the reason for him being placed there.

Somewhere out there a family now morns his death.

We have to remember that while he is only one out of about 200 children mentioned on this blog, he was also an individual person with relatives who misses him. A person who might have been grown up and made something out of live, if he had been allowed.

May he find peace where he is now.

Jared Camacho - 2020

No one seems to know what caused 12-year-old Jared Camacho to run away from the Rose-Mary Center. He ended up on highway with lots of traffic and he was struck by a vehicle.

It is worth to investigate but it to understand why focus has been on the family who so tragicly lost one of their family members.

12 years is very little to be allowed to live.

May he find peace where he is now.
