Death in CAS Custody

Canada Court Watch reports that an unnamed York Region foster boy has committed suicide. Will he be buried, as he lived, without a name?
15-year-old boy commits suicide while under supervision of York Region CAS
(August 9, 2007) - Sources connected to CAS have reported to Court Watch that a 15-year-old York Region boy may have committed suicide yesterday. At the time of his death, the boy was under the supervision of the York Region CAS. Court Watch has received a number of calls from parents and children complaining about the mean-spirited actions of over-zealous workers at the York Region CAS, including the worker who was this boy's worker with the CAS. Could this boy's death be the result of yet more incompetence and lack of due diligence by York Region CAS workers and/or the courts? The reports of how the boy died have yet to be confirmed and Court Watch will provide readers with more information as soon as it becomes available.
