Jordan Burling, and 1 sibling

Jordan Burling, age 18, died of bronchopneumonia as a result of medical neglect by his mother, Dawn Cranston, his sister Abigail Burling, and his grandmother Denise Cranston. Jordan was homeschooled. The body of Jordan’s infant brother was also found concealed in the home.

When he attended the local elementary school, Jordan had head lice, dental decay, and couldn’t control his bodily functions. He went on to attend Farnley Park High School for a few terms, but then his mother pulled him out of school to homeschool him. Jordan last saw a dentist in 2009 when “16 of his teeth were treated, four of them removed.” Jordan’s father, who did not live with the family, last saw him in December 2015. According to the family members accused of abusing Jordan, about three months before Jordan’s death, he injured his leg and decided he would stop walking. The family members also claim that Jordan refused to see a doctor.

The abuse came to light when Dawn Cranston called paramedics to report Jordan was dying. When the paramedics arrived they found his body riddled with rotting bedsores, the bones exposed, and Jordan weighed only 84 lbs. Jordan’s mother, sister, and grandmother were charged with manslaughter and allowing the death of a vulnerable adult. Dawn Cranston was also charged with concealing the birth of a child.
