Upon arrival to the condo, responding officers found the motionless body of 13-year-old American female, Faye Lin Cannon.
Also present at the condo were Faye’s adopted parents whose names have not been released to the media.
The mother told the Police Officers that at around 7:00 AM, Faye woke up and asked for a drink of water then went back to bed shortly after.
She continued claiming that about 15-minutes after Faye had gone back to bed, her husband went into Faye’s room to check up on her and noticed that she was unresponsive.
The adoptive parents also told Police that Faye was mentally ill and would resort to committing physical abuse upon herself such as hitting herself and slamming herself against walls when suffering attacks and that for the past three weeks she was getting worst as she refused to leave her room or to even eat anything.
The body of Faye Lin Cannon was transported to the Polyclinic where she was pronounced dead upon arrival.
The body was then transported to the Karl Huesner Memorial Hospital in Belize City where an autopsy was performed.
Ambergis Caye Police have since detained both adoptive parents for questioning as the post-mortem examination revealed that Faye had been Physically and Sexually Abused before passing away.
