FAM­ILY FEAR AMANDA’S BODY

for all of us. It was an aw­ful, aw­ful thing. Ev­ery­thing had gone from in­side her apart from her small bowel. “There was noth­ing they could do a post­mortem on be­cause there was noth­ing in there. “She had been in hos­pi­tal a few times with ke­toaci­do­sis, which is one of those hor­ri­ble things you get with di­a­betes. “I don’t un­der­stand why she died within 12 hours of go­ing into hos­pi­tal. “The hos­pi­tal said she wouldn’t take flu­ids but the first thing you do is put them on a drip and that brings them round. It isn’t some­thing that would have killed her.” One cause of death given by the Mex­i­can au­thor­i­ties was “vis­ceral con­ges­tion” which baf­fled pathol­o­gists in the UK.

The hos­pi­tal is adamant that all her or­gans were in her body be­fore she was trans­ferred to a po­lice sta­tion for a post­mortem.

Hor­ren­dous

Elaine cre­mated her daugh­ter on Amanda’s birth­day, Fe­bru­ary 27, with­out her vi­tal or­gans. She was ad­mit­ted to hos­pi­tal last De­cem­ber.

The mum said: “It is heart­break­ing, the most hor­ren­dous thing. She was a lovely girl, very spir­i­tual.”
