Woman diagnosed with cancer killed daughter with Down syndrome
A Calgary woman who gave a fatal dose of drugs to her 19year-old daughter with Down syndrome can't be charged with a crime because she has since died.
Police say Jessica Hagan was killed when she was given an intentional overdose by an older woman in the family's home in September.
They say that woman was also found in medical distress and taken to hospital.
Christine Hagan, who was 51, died on Nov. 21 of pancreatic cancer.
Daniel Hagan wrote on his Tumblr social media account a week later about the deaths.
He says his mother felt that she was the only one who could take care of his sister.
“So she took her life and attempted to take her own,'' he wrote on Nov. 30.
“She then spent her final days in a hospital bed with security outside her room until she became too weak and suffered from what I would assume is complete organ failure due to not eating or drinking the entire time.”
The body builder and personal trainer said he wanted to publicly write about what happened so he could move on with his life.
