MISE À DAY
Twelve people were arrested in Australia on Tuesday in connection with the death of an eight-year-old girl.
They have been charged with the murder of the little Elizabeth Struhs who was found dead in her parents' house on January 8 in Rangeville.
The latter, Kerrie Elizabeth and Jason Richard Struhs, had already been charged with murder and torture in January.
According to the chief of police, the girl was deprived of her insulin and medical care for several days before her death.
All of the accused persons, who are part of a religious group called “The Saints,” never came to his assistance.
“I've never seen this in my 40-year career,” investigator Garry Watts told 9News.
“I don't think anything like this has ever happened in Queensland or even Australia. A total of 14 people, seven women and five men, made the choice to refuse this little girl to be treated.
