Stuff like this just makes my heart wrench just thinking about the little kid hanging out with her dead mom for three days.
According to Hammett Shanta had been struggling with Nausea and had been to her clinic in St. Paul and to the emergency room as well. They had given her medication for vomiting because she was not able to keep anything down. She had also been on the phone with telling a nurse that she had been throwing up blood.
When the girls was found she was covered with her mother’s blood where she had been lying with her mother sleeping.
Her home phone was out of service and apparently the only other option was her cell phone, which was out of minutes. Don’t people know that cell phones will dial 911 whether you have minutes or not? The cell providers are obligated to put calls through to 911.
