Publisher's Summary

Lacey Spears made international headlines in January 2015, when she was charged with the "depraved mind" murder of her five-year-old son, Garnett. Prosecutors alleged that the 27-year-old mother had poisoned him with high concentrations of salt through his stomach tube.
To the outside world, Lacey had seemed like the perfect mother, regularly posting dramatic updates on her son's harrowing medical problems. But in reality, Lacey was a textbook case of Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy. From the time he was an infant, she deliberately made Garnett sick to elicit sympathy from medical professionals, as well as her hundreds of followers on Facebook and other social media. When a Westchester County jury found her guilty of killing Garnett in April 2015, she was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison.
Using Lacey's own never-before-seen Facebook, Twitter, and blog posts, an exclusive prison interview with Lacey herself, as well as interviews with her family and the three police investigators who broke the case, My Sweet Angel gives the definitive account of this extraordinary case that shocked the world.

Very sad

The reason why I give the story only 1 star ⭐️ is simply because this terrible incident shouldn't have happened. I really hope this evil woman never has a moments peace. But even in the epilogue she can't give remorse. This book, must teach others to realise how important, doctors, hospitals, social services all communicate with each other to make sure this never happens again. Not one day, or one child should suffer at the hands that should protect them. Thankfully the police did a full in depth, hard at times investigation. Especially now that social media has taken over this world. The solicitors summed it up perfectly, this unfortunately was never about this sweet boy. It was always about his disgusting attention seeking ill mother. A very hard moving account, presented in the best tasteful way you can tell such a truth. It's not a story, because it's not made up, and it has no happy ending for a beautiful boy.
