Coroner: Adopted teen died of hypothermia in backyard

(Aug 1, 2011, SEDRO-WOOLLEY, Wash, komonews.)-- The Skagit County coroner has ruled than an adopted 13-year-old girl died of hypothermia in her own backyard.

It happened in May, but police and Child Protective Services are still investigating, and now, so are the KOMO Problem Solvers. According to the coroner's office, Hana Williams was found dead on May 12 in the yard of her Sedro-Woolley home.

"Her death was suspicious, that is what was reported to the department," said Patty Turner with Child Protective Services. "There are reports that she was outside that evening and reports of significant weight loss."

CPS told KOMO News it believes Hana, who was adopted from Ethiopia in 2008, was outside most of the night in the rain on the day she died. Read the full story at Komo news »
