In a court ruling on November 15th, 2013, Washington natives Larry and Carri Williams were found guilty of murdering their adopted daughter. Hana Williams was found dead laying face down and naked in the family’s backyard in May 2011. Officials determined her death was caused by hypothermia and malnutrition. According to the investigation, “the parents had deprived her of food for days at a time and had made her sleep in a cold barn or a closet and shower outside with a hose. And they often whipped her, leaving marks on her legs.”
