Five-year-old black girl found shot in the forehead, possible suicide.
Her is family indigent due to years of poor decision making.
“Listen, without any doubt, there are a lot of questions that can be asked about why a 5-year-old was left at home alone with a gun,” says D. Majeeda Snead, a longtime New Orleans criminal-defense attorney and clinical professor at Loyola University New Orleans College of Law. Snead is not directly involved in the case.
“But I also think there may be some other questions that need to be asked and answered here.
Did the broader system of child services fail her? Did the system fail this family, long before this child died?”
