Autism Dad kills self and son after touring group home

'Cruel' to transfer autistic boy, Edmonton inquiry told - Edmonton - CBC News

Forcing an 11-year-old autistic boy to be moved suddenly out of a private-care facility was "cruel," a fatality inquiry into his and his father's death was told Wednesday.

Bruce Uditsky, the head of the Alberta Association for Community Living, testified that yanking Jeremy Bostick out from the care centre and placing him into a lockdown facility would have been jarring and emotionally crushing for his family.

The transfer was particularly hard on Jeremy's father, Jeffrey Bostick, the hearing was told. Bostick killed both himself and his son shortly after touring the group home where Jeremy was transferred to.
