Unthinkable discovery in Canada as remains of 215 children found buried near residential school

Please don't ignore this news article. 

The former Kamloops Indian Residential School on Thursday, May 27, in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada. The remains of 215 children have been found buried on school's grounds, which closed in 1978.

(CNN)The gruesome discovery took decades and for some survivors of the Kamloops Indian Residential School in Canada, the confirmation that children as young as 3 were buried on school grounds crystallizes the sorrow they have carried all their lives.

"I lost my heart, it was so much hurt and pain to finally hear, for the outside world, to finally hear what we assumed was happening there," said Harvey McLeod, who attended the school for two years in the late 1960s, in a telephone interview with CNN Friday.
"The story is so unreal, that yesterday it became real for a lot of us in this community," he said.
    The Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc community in the southern interior of British Columbia, where the school was located, released a statement late Thursday saying an "unthinkable loss that was spoken about but never documented" was confirmed.
    "This past weekend, with the help of a ground penetrating radar specialist, the stark truth of the preliminary findings came to light -- the confirmation of the remains of 215 children who were students of the Kamloops Indian Residential School," said Chief Rosanne Casimir of the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc community.
      "To our knowledge, these missing children are undocumented deaths," she said in the statement.

      Missing Girl, 15, Found Dead in Industrial Area of Compton Had ‘Traumatic’ Injury

      BY  AND 

      A death investigation is underway after the body of a missing 15-year-old girl was found with a "traumatic" injury in an industrial part of Compton on Monday, authorities said.

      Homicide detectives responded to the 500 block of West Victoria Street after the discovery of a body was made shortly before 1:30 a.m., according to a news release from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

      The victim was identified by the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner as Samantha Bustos-Vital. The girl's family contacted KTLA saying she had been missing since Friday after hanging out with friends.

      According to sheriff's officials, the teen resided in an unincorporated area of Gardena and was officially reported missing by family members on Sunday.

      She was found Monday after suffering a "traumatic" injury to her upper torso, the sheriff's release stated.

      The area where her body was discovered is near the fenced-off Dominguez Hills Industrial Park, a portion of which was cordoned off with yellow crime scene tape throughout the morning, video from the scene showed.

      National Retail System is located on the property and personnel are cooperating with the investigation, according to Andy Miller, the company's executive vice president.

      “I got a call early this morning that they had found a body on the perimeter of the property," Miller told KTLA. "We’re cooperating with the police in every way possible. They asked for camera footage over a period of time.”

      Detectives told KTLA the girl's body was found face down and concealed in bushes.

      Coroner's officials have ruled her death a homicide, but the cause was being withheld due to the ongoing investigation, the Sheriff's Department said.

      It is also unclear exactly how long the body was at the location before being discovered.

      “They believe it happened sometime Saturday evening," Miller said.

      Detectives are now trying to identify a suspect or suspects and determine a motive.

      In an email to KTLA, the victim's cousin said Bustos never returned home after hanging out with friends Friday afternoon, "which is not normal behavior." She didn't answer her cellphone, which was shut off after midnight, according to the cousin.

      The family has set up a GoFundMe campaign to help raise money for Bustos' funeral costs.

      No additional details have been released amid the ongoing investigation.

      Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500. Anonymous tips can be submitted through Crime Stoppers by dialing 800-222-8477, or visiting the website

      Husband doesn't blame wife for killing son: (California)

      CBS NEWS (AP) 
      ORANGE, Calif. - The husband of a woman accused of tossing her disabled 7-month-old son off the fourth story of a hospital parking structure said Wednesday that his wife suffered from postpartum depression and he doesn't blame her for her actions.
      The baby, Noe Medina Jr., died of his injuries earlier in the day at the University of California, Irvine, Medical Center, the same day that his mother was charged with murder and felony child abuse.

      Sonia Hermosillo, 31, made a brief court appearance but did not enter a plea. She is due back in court Thursday.
      Prosecutors allege that Hermosillo removed a helmet that her son wore for a medical condition before tossing him from the parking structure at Children's Hospital of Orange County. She then went back inside the hospital to validate her parking before driving away late Monday, senior deputy district attorney Scott Simmons said.
      Hermosillo's husband, Noe Medina, said in an emotional press conference that he didn't blame his wife and urged women to get treatment if they think they might have postpartum depression.
      He previously told The Orange County Register that his wife was deeply distraught because their son was diagnosed with congenital muscular torticollis — a twisting of the neck to one side — and wore a helmet to help correct his plagiocephaly, also known as flat-head syndrome.
      He had been receiving treatment at Children's Hospital but did not have an appointment the day of the incident.
      "My wife was not in her five senses. She didn't know what she was doing," Medina said, choking back tears. "I don't know if many people know what postpartum depression is, but in reality it is something very serious and needs to be treated."
