Name: Sharon Greenop.
Died: Months before November 10, 2016.
Age at death: 46.
Cause of death: Fatal abuse.
Location: Troon, Ayrshire, Scotland.
Disability: Prolapsed disc; mobility impaired.
A year before Sharon died, they had fired her aide. Sharon became increasingly isolated and was mistreated and neglected by her family. They even threw away the table that she used to do jigsaw puzzles on.
How Sharon died was initially unknown because, when she died, her family left her body in her room for several months while they pretended on social media that she was still alive.
Police labeled Sharon’s death “suspicious” and investigated for some weeks before eventually arresting her sister for beating Sharon, then refusing to get her treatment for the injuries that ultimately proved fatal.
Before her disability, Sharon had worked at a bakery.
Perpetrator: Lynnette Greenop (sister), convicted of murder, sentenced to 23 years; Shayla Greenop (Daughter), charged with murder, acquitted.
