Little Teagan's body was found in the back trunk of the family car in 2014. Lisa Batstone had held a plastic bag over her nose and the child's mouth for four to five minutes. She then attempted suicide, but failed.

The mother was convicted of second degree murder in 2019 for the choking death of his daughter.

In 2022, Lisa Batstone's appeal was rejected. In its decision, the Court of Appeal noted that the woman had never accepted her breakup with Teagan's father, adding that she had intended to kill herself, but she did not didn't want to leave his daughter with him.

Gabe Batstone, the victim's father, emphasizes that the death of his ex-spouse does not erase the pain and loss of Teagan, whose absence is felt every day.

However, he adds, the burden is lightened […] We no longer face the prospect of possible release, an event which would have constituted an undeniable risk for other innocent children.

Our main goal is to& #x27;honor Teagan's memory and cherish the happiness she brought to our lives.
