Cornwall Ontario – The sad tale of little Gionni Garlow ended recently when the ailing tot passed away. His life from the start was in headlines.
He was born in jail. His mother, Julie Bilotta, (Julie Dakota Garlow) on social media was in jail where she gave birth after guards did not accept that she was in labour.
The experience for Ms Bilotta was horrific. Little Gionni’s life was in the spotlight from his first breath nearly until his sad last. Grist for the mill.
As I type this story it has been covered all over the region, from Cornwall to Ottawa and picked up by services.
Media outlets are rehashing Ms Bilotta’s ordeal that led to today. In fact if not for her previous situation the media would most certainly not be publishing the death.
People are expressing themselves about this on Facebook and Twitter. Most are of course about condolences.
I would like to think that something positive can come out of tragedy. I’m an optimist that way. The gift of motherhood and children are the greatest on our planet and something that more people need to be more focused on and cherish.
CFN wishes to send its condolences to Julie and her entire family. To post condolences to Julie you can click this link to her Facebook page. LINK
Cornwall, ON – Shortly after 5 a.m., on Sunday, October 13th, 2013, Cornwall Community Police Service responded to a report of a 13-month-old child with vital signs absent, at a Cornwall residence. The child was transported to hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
As is the Provincial Standard, such cases are automatically investigated by the Regional Coroner’s Office, with the assistance of the police, to attempt and determine the cause and manner of death. An autopsy is scheduled later the week.
Out of respect for the family the Cornwall Community Police are not releasing the name of the infant at this time.
