Conner liked video games and building forts.

Conner’s mother hanged him and his sister Brinley from a dog lead in their basement. She tried to pass it off as a suicide, claiming that Conner had been bullied at school because of his disability, and had killed himself and his little sister; but police established that Conner didn’t have the dexterity necessary to use the dog lead to hang himself, and his mother had been researching hanging online.

Perpetrator: Lisa Rachelle Snyder (Mother), charged with first-degree murder, third-degree murder, tampering with evidence, and endangering the welfare of children.
