16-year-old Cornelius Frederick ended up at Lakeside Academy after his mother died in her sleep at age 32.
No other family members were able to take care of him. Instead of an upbringing in a caring family, he now had a future living in an institutionalized setting. Or rather no future because a conflict with the employees ended up with him being restrained. The incident which took more than 18 minutes can be seen in a video which is floating around the internet. You will not find the video on this blog because it is only a blog about remembering Cornelius Frederick as a person. A person who might had potential to do a lot of things with his life but so tragicly was robbed of us over such a little ting as a bowl of food.
Regardless of the outcome of the investigation which was launced after the death, it cannot bring him back.
His life was lost. 16 years was all he was granted on this earth.
May he rest in peace.
