Statement on behalf of Brenda Reuben, mother of Jasmine Wilson
I’m speaking out to appeal to the people who know what has happened to my daughter, to ask them to please come forward
Our family is grieving and we are desperately hoping for closure.
Jasmine was a loved mother, daughter, sister and granddaughter.
Her family and friends can’t understand why this has happened to her.
We know Jasmine was dropped at Whanganui Hospital with the severe injuries that led to her death, but we still don’t
know how she sustained those injuries.
No one should have to see a family member in the state we saw Jasmine in.
She was unrecognisable.
There are people who know what happened to her.
We are pleading with you to come forward and do the right thing.
Anyone who has information, no matter how small you think it might be, please get in touch with Police.
