This 8 year old girl as the victim of a crime so despicable, a paramedic was seen running from the home in tears. Yet the only names I can find are the charged, Kerrie Elizabeth Struhs and Jason Richard Struhs.

The couple cannot apply for bail and were remanded in custody until March 24 during a brief appearance in Toowoomba Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

The child was found dead on Saturday afternoon at a home at Rangeville, Toowoomba.

Detectives on Tuesday arrested the 50-year-old man and a 46-year-old woman who were both were known to the child.

State MP for Toowoomba South David Janetzki claimed the girl was known to Queensland's Department of Child Safety.

"What happened here and could it have been prevented? To think of the little girl's suffering is heartbreaking," he said.

"The child was obviously known to the department and there are serious questions about how this tragedy occurred.

"This precious child, like so many vulnerable children, deserved protection but the system has failed her."

How bizarre. Might explain why they've both refused lawyers. Probably believe God will save them.

This poor child.

Nutters. They're going to learn God won't save them from what they've got coming.

This back in July, 2021. A Toowoomba mother was sentenced to jail, the father was given a suspended sentence. They have eight children. How awful, it might seem she got out of jail and either killed her (the age seems about right) or another child in the house.

They could give the little girl the respect of naming.

Key points:
  • A mother, 46, was found guilty of endangering her daughter's life by failing to seek medical care
  • The six-year-old child weighed only 13.4 kg and had to be resuscitated when taken to hospital in 2019
  • The woman has been jailed for 18 months and will be eligible for parole in five months' time

Would surely be the same family. Ages, place, the God aspect.

But I cannot believe they let her out after 5 months???!!!

This new report has names to poor angel, unfortunately she seems to be named after her "mother's" middle name (I struggle to call this woman a mother).

And it appears as though you are on the money with your attached article...everything fits...ages of those involved, location, illness suffered by the child and number of siblings :cry:

Looks like biological parents. Maybe they suppressed the name if there were family members that hadn't been notified of her death?

Just wondering if the family were practicing some weird religion they might have cut ties with other family members.

Or with a number of kids in the family maybe there was some confusion over exactly which child, especially if the family had cut themselves off from society. I'm going to guess they didn't send the kids to school.
