At least five different clinics and health institutions were involved in the treatment of the 13-year-old girl who died at Beitostølen on New Year’s Eve. The police are investigating who stopped the treatment.
– We will focus on this in our further investigations, but we do not want to make any further comments on this now, police attorney Mari Lauritzen Hasle said to the local newspaper Budstikka.
Hasle says that they have already questioned many of the persons involved in the case
– But there still are persons that we have yet to question, and we haven’t finished questioning the accused yet, says Hasle.
According to Budstikka the County Governor of Oslo and Akershus has asked a number of agencies to give briefings on their dealings with the girl. These include two general practitioners, the child and adolescent psychiatry department at Vestre Viken, BUP-West( the department of Vinderen and Oslo University Hospital), and Regional Section for eating disorders. According to the newspaper the GPs have also been asked to extradite two complete records.
Police have reported that the Bærum girl probably died of emaciation. The girl’s family wrote in a letter that her mother for years had fought a “hopeless battle against the organized society”, but without getting help.
