March 22, 2018, may have started off normally for Sierra Greenlee. On that day, the mom had left home for work, safe in the knowledge that she’d be picking up her three-year-old daughter Arya later. However, within seconds of collecting her daughter from the babysitter, Greenlee began to panic – and that March date became one that would live on in her memory forever.
Greenlee had envisaged the following day to be a special one, as mom and daughter had been apart for a while. March 23, 2018, would begin with a late breakfast, before the toys came out and the fun started. Or, at least, that’s what Greenlee had had in mind.
So, once the mom had arrived at the babysitter’s house, the childminder gathered Arya and transferred her to Greenlee’s car. But something didn’t appear quite right: Arya looked exhausted, and her body appeared lifeless. Greenlee even jokingly asked if her little treasure was breathing. Then she put her hand on her daughter’s chest, and everything felt still.
