Photo of Jonathan Crabtree, a young man with light skin and brown hair, wearing a T-shirt.Name: Jonathan Crabtree.
Died: July 18, 2017.
Age at death: 26.
Cause of death: Murder.
Location: Upper Coomera, Queensland, Australia.
Disability: Developmental disability, TBI from car accident.

Details:
Jonathan and his two disabled sisters were abused by their mother, who repeatedly sedated them with prescription drugs. It probably made their disability much more severe than it would otherwise have been. Jonathan’s sister Erin died in 2012, a victim of a deliberate overdose administered by their mother; but her death was passed off as a suicide.

After Jonathan was hurt in a car accident, he had to take opiates and became addicted. His mother encouraged his addiction and even manipulated him into robbing a pharmacy for Tramadol. She killed him by giving him an overdose of opiates and forged a suicide note.

Jonathan’s other sister survived their ordeal and was rescued when the murders were discovered.

Perpetrator: Maree Crabtree (Mother), charged with two counts of murder, grievous bodily harm, torture, fraud, and armed robbery.
