Michigan Memorial Funeral Home in Flat Rock, which is handling arrangements, said Kathleen Edward died Wednesday. The girl’s father, Robert Edward, told The Detroit News that she died at home in the Detroit suburb of Wyandotte.

The News reported Kathleen is expected to be buried at Mount Hope Memorial Gardens in Livonia next to her mother, Laura Edward, who died of Huntington’s disease in 2009.

In 2010, a former neighbor in the Detroit suburb of Trenton taunted Kathleen. One Facebook posting was of her photo placed above a set of crossbones and another included a photo of her mother in the arms of the grim reaper.
