Kyisha passed away aged 8, she was in the care of DoCS when she died of a drug overdose. Kyisha had only just learnt to put her pull-ups on & was the size of a 3 yr old she was a special needs child, yet her mother was told that Kyisha had got up through the night found a bottle of sedatives & consumed the whole bottle got back in to bed & was found at 9am deceased in her bed. Kyisha was always up before the sun came up so how did they not check on her earlier.

There are so many unanswered questions how could Kyisha open a bottle of sedatives & consume a whole bottle & just go back to bed like nothing happened. Kyisha was so defenceless, someone to be held accountable for her death. They chucked her around to 15 different families & they kept sending her back to the home for unwanted kids, nobody wanted her she was all alone in this world & she died alone.

There has never been Coroner's Inquiry no body has been held accountable please help Kyisha and her Mother and Family get Justice.


We petition for a Coroner's Inquiry into Kyisha's death, and a review into DoCs and their failure of care of duty.

Those responsible for Kyisha's care at the time should be held accountable for her death.
