So devastating.

According to, Queensland police were called to Veruca’s residence at 6:13 on Monday morning, where initial investigations determined the child’s death was not suspicious. Gold Coast Police superintendent Craig Hanlon said:

“It’s still under investigation and we’re awaiting autopsy results. It’s obviously a tragic situation and our hearts go out to the mother and the family.”

Our hearts are shattered for Veruca. We’re sending lots of love her way. Rest in peace, Cash.
