Zahra Baker, a ten year old cancer survivor and amputee living in North Carolina, was reported missing in October 2010. When allegations of child abuse had surfaced the previous year, her parents had withdrawn her from public school at the end of the term, telling officials that they were going to homeschool her. They never filed the required homeschooling paperwork with the state. Zahra’s dismembered body was found in November, and the date of her death was determined to have been late September. Her stepmother, Elisa Baker, is being charged with her murder.
Date: September 24, 2010
