The Boy Who Ate Himself To Death

on Sat, 10/26/2013 - 08:27

AT the age of seven he weighed almost 50 kilograms and had a body mass index roughly double what it should have been.

Despite hospital staff providing his parents with a weight management plan, the boy put on another six kilograms in the six weeks after he left John Hunter Children's Hospital and two years later he was dead due to complications from obesity.

Newcastle Coroners Court is examining the death, including the role his parents, the Department of Family and Community Services and the NSW Department of Education and Training may have played.

The Newcastle boy was rushed to John

In loving memory of Kyisha Griffiths Died in Foster Care Aged 8

My gorgeous lil daughter Kyisha Maree Griffiths Cottom was in the care of DOCS & died of a drug overdose at 8. There was no coroners inquest as they did not feel the need to do one. Kyisha was 8 she was special needs & no one has been held accountable.

I cant understand why so many ppl have looked at the Justice for Kyisha Griffiths Cottom facebook page & havent put like on it. it breaks my heart, wat sort of ppl do that, if only they do one click we could raise the likes to 1000's.

Note: I read a few lines of this fake inquest finding, and was disgusted at the blatant lies told about what DoCS did to my little Lukey Pookey, so I sent it onto a couple of people with experience in this type of thing, here are their replies...


From a mother who had her son muredered in foster care and then covered up...

I read it this morning mike haven't been n its f..king disgusting. They had a duty of care Mick, that duty they failed, not the old lady as such but Docs because she did not want the child under a certain age and was very specific, thats where there duty lies.

Meaning behind facebook photos: DoCS Cairns North Terrorists

Meaning behind facebook photos: DoCS Cairns North Terrorists

I am sorry if people got the wrong idea about my facebook wall photo and profile avatar. Someone said that they will come back and use this photo against me, so just to clarify the meaning behind the wallpaper on my profile page....


 We are dealing with people who kidnap and murder children. Who refuse to step in and help a baby who is in obvious danger, letting them die instead. They then appear at the inquest of this child, insisting the father leave the inquest of his son while they give evidence, which shows how fair the judge is, and what sort of inquest it is.

Coronial Inquest for Luke Borusiewicz

I made DoCS wait til I made this last film with Lukey, then they took him away.

Luke's Inquest was on 25-27 July 2012.

This photo was taken on my last visit with my Lukey Pookey, he died in my arms two weeks later. You can see the scratches on his face. I rang and rang trying to get him out of that house, away from that foster carer who had already been complained about over 20 times from abuse to other children. Pat Anderson, manager Cairns North DoCS wouldn't even return my calls, she knew all of this.

The next day at a visit with his mother she found severe scratches on his penis

Foster system full before boy's death

on Fri, 08/10/2012 - 02:21

A toddler who died in the care of an elderly woman was placed with her largely because there were no other foster parents available, an inquest has been told.

Two-year-old Luke Borusiewicz died in hospital on January 12, 2009, after he fell from his bed while in foster care.

At the inquest into his death on Thursday, former Families Plus placement support worker Colleen Lowe said the organisation had tried urgently to find a foster carer for Luke before Christmas 2008.

"There were very few options," she told the inquest in Cairns.

When asked if the then 74-year-old foster carer, who cannot be

Coronial inquest into toddler foster care tragedy

on Fri, 08/10/2012 - 01:22

MICHAEL Borusiewicz's grief over the death of his beautiful blue-eyed toddler is immeasurable, but he hopes to use it to bring about change to the government department he holds responsible for the tragedy.

Yesterday, Mr Borusiewicz sat through the first day of a coronial inquest into his two-year-old son Luke’s death and heard details of Child Safety Services’ decision to place him with a 74-year-old foster carer in Cairns.

The court heard the woman was taking care of four other foster children and had asked for help due to ill-health the day Luke hit his head and slipped into a coma on

Inquest probes toddler foster care death of Luke Borusiewicz

on Fri, 08/10/2012 - 01:08

A father whose young son died in foster care says he hopes an inquest into the toddler's death will expose flaws in Queensland's child safety system.

The court heard that child safety officers had concerns about the fact the

The Coroner's Court in Cairns is this week examining the death of two-year-old Luke Borusiewicz who died after sustaining head injuries while in the care of a 74-year-old woman in 2009.

When asked whether that raised concerns, she said 'it always raised concerns' but that 'the problem

Foster child died of highly treatable chest infection

Forums: 

A three-year-old child in foster care died from a highly treatable chest infection, a coroner's inquest heard Tuesday.

"He would have had a very good chance of survival," forensic pathologist Dr. Elizabeth Brooks-Lim testified. The chances of surviving such an infection are 90 to 95 per cent with medical treatment, she said, adding antibiotics would normally take care of it.

But the illness in APG, who can only be identified by initials, went undetected. He was found dead in his crib at a Pense foster home on Dec. 17, 2009.
