In a nation plagued by Obesity, death by starvation seems so much worse.
A teenage girl has allegedly been starved to death by her mother, who was said to have joined a ‘pro-hunger’ group.
Markea Blakely-Berry, who was mentally disabled, weighed just 40lb at the time of her death – and relatives claims she was routinely ‘punished’ by her mother Ebony Berry.
Berry, 38, faces charges of murder and first-degree child cruelty after 16-year-old Markea was found dead at her home in Georgia…Markea’s other relatives have now revealed their suspicions that she was being abused and underfed throughout her short life.
‘She hated her,’ said the girl’s grandmother Cheryl Goree. ‘She punished her daughter. She didn’t have to kill my grandbaby like that.’
Not the tool, the people. “Gun Death” is NOT a relevant metric.
