Four-year-old with Down syndrome starved to death by father

The child’s body was left to rot and get eaten by rats in her cot after her death.

 

Police found the decomposing body of Willow Dunn in her bed days after her death in Brisbane, Australia. Her father, Mike James Dunn, knew that his daughter had died on Saturday but he waited until Monday to call the 000-emergency number. Police arrested Mike for Willow’s murder. An online candlelight vigil has been held for Willow.

The four-year-old with intellectual disability did not have the best start in life as her mother passed away during childbirth on November 5, 2015. Naomi Dunn left behind two adult children from a previous relationship, as well as Willow and her now seven-year-old brother. After Naomi’s death, Willow lived with her aunt and uncle for about a year. Mike eventually took Willow and her brother to live with him.
