A grandmum of a 13-year-old autistic boy received a letter from her neighour to either move out of the neighborhood or have him euthanized (i.e have him killed). If you dont know, Euthanasia or Mercy killing refers to the practice of intentionally ending a life in order to relieve pain and suffering.
The boy's grandmother, Brenda Millson who lives in canada received the anonymous letter on Friday and immediately reported it to the police. Police have said the letter will not be considered a hate crime.
But after making international headlines, different people have been sending messages to his family on how they would love to help and also pay different bills. There is no cure for this yet, but some children get better with it as they grow older.
