Lucas

No PhotoName: Lucas (Last name unknown).
Died: June 6, 2016.
Age at death: 7 months.
Cause of death: Neglect.
Location: Hasselt, Belgium.
Disability: Feeding disorder, as diagnosed by parents.

Details:
Lucas’s parents believed that he had a feeding disorder. Although neither of them had any medical training, they did not seek a doctor’s help and instead assumed he must be gluten and lactose intolerant. They switched to feeding Lucas a gluten-free, casein-free diet made of nut and grain milks. This diet does not contain sufficient nutrition for a baby, and Lucas failed to gain weight.

For seven months, Lucas slowly starved to death. Only when he was dying did his parents seek help from a doctor, and even then it was a homeopathic doctor, who sensibly told them to go immediately to a hospital. By the time they arrived, Lucas was dead. He weighed half what a baby his age should weigh, and had no food in his digestive system.

Perpetrator: Sandrina V. (Mother) and Peter S. (Father). On trial; prosecutor seeking 18-month sentences.
