Young Teenager’s Death Remains Unexplained


The cause of death of 16-year-old Harristown State High School student Kaitlin Barton remains unknown while the Toowoomba community is rallying together to raise over $10,000 for Kaitlins family to help cover funeral costs.

Kaitlin Barton passed away in the early hours of Sunday morning while at a weekend sleepover.

The teenager was camping in her friend's backyard when she collapsed outside the tent where her friends later found her around 8:00 AM.
