Kankakee, IL (PRWEB) May 08, 2013
James Spiros of Spiros Law, P.C., has filed a civil suit against The Baby Fold, a foster care organization based in Normal, Illinois, and foster parents Joshua and Heather Lamie in the death of 4-year-old Kianna Rudesill (case number 2013 L 64 filed in Kankakee County, IL). According to court documents, the suit, filed on behalf of Kianna’s biological father, James Rudesill, alleges that Heather and Joshua Lamie were responsible for the death of Kianna, who suffered blunt force trauma to the head and upper body and who eventually died as a result of these injuries. The coroner’s report indicated that the cause of death was consistent with homicide.
In addition to the Lamie family, the suit also names The Baby Fold of Normal, the foster care agency responsible for placing Kianna in the Lamie home, as partially responsible for the death. As the agency with ultimate supervisory authority over those who care for children in its system, the suit alleges that The Baby Fold acted negligently in failing to act on complaints of mistreatment against Kianna, even after evidence emerged that her wrists had been cut and she was placed in a hospital for behavioral health.
The lawsuit against the two parties seeks both damages and legal costs in excess of $50,000.
