Intersected: Invisible Autistic Filicide Victims

“We must be concerned not merely about who murdered them, but  about the system, the way of life, the philosophy which produced the murderers.” 

 – Martin Luther King Jr. Eulogy for the Martyred Children (1963)

Tuesday December 17th marked the one year anniversary of the murder of Melissa Stoddard. While the press continues to follow the attempted murder of Isabelle Stapleton by focusing on her mother Kelli, Melissa, who died horribly after sustained torture by her father and stepmother, is forgotten. She is part of The Autism Wars memorial timeline for intersected autistic and disabled victims of murder.
