Samantha Backler: died of starvation in 2010. Samantha doesn’t quite fit this page but her death was avoidable and tragic and mediated by perceived helplessness among service providers.

Brendan MasonBrendan Mason, a man with ‘multiple learning disabilities’ was killed by men he thought were his friends: “Joshua Hack, 21, and Keith Lowe, 22, lured ‘easily led’ Brendan Mason to a park, making him believe they wanted to spend time with him. But when they arrived, they hung him from a tree, taking turns hitting him while the other held him for several hours, laughing and taunting him in the early hours of July 5 last year [2015].”
