Emily Barut

No PhotoName: Emily Barut.
Died: September 15, 2012.
Age at death: 11.
Cause of death: Medical neglect.
Location: Tullamore, Ireland.
Disability: Microcephaly, epilepsy, physical disability, intellectual disability.

Emily’s mother–a doctor–poisoned her with chloral hydrate, a powerful sedative. She said she had done it to try to stop her daughter’s seizures; but the dose she gave was very high, and Emily died.

Emily’s mother was acquitted because the jury believed that, although she had a very high and potentially fatal dose of chloral hydrate in her system at the time, she had died of natural causes from her underlying illness.

Perpetrator: Bernadette Scully (Mother), charged with manslaughter; acquitted.
