Name: Sabrina Ray.
Died: May 12, 2017.
Age at death: 16.
Cause of death: Neglect.
Location: Perry, Iowa, USA.
Sabrina was tortured and starved by her family. When she died at age 16 after being drop-kicked down the stairs by her adoptive brother and subsequently starving to death, she weighed 56 pounds and looked like an eight-year-old child.
Her death may have saved the lives of her two adopted sisters, who were also abused and were rescued from the home and taken to the hospital when Sabrina was found dead.
Perpetrator: Marc Ray (Adoptive father), charged with child endangerment and child neglect; Misty Ray (Adoptive mother), charged with child endangerment and child neglect; Carla Bousman (Adoptive grandmother), arrested as an accomplice; Josie Raye Bousman (Niece), arrested; Justin Dale Ray (Adoptive brother), charged with child endangerment and willful injury.
