Police in Missouri say Orionis died from abuse at the hands of her aunt's boyfriend.

The girl's mother had sent her daughter to her aunt's because of a charge that the girl drank a bottle of Benadryl, which was later proven to be untrue.

The family could not afford to fly the girl's body home, but Wings of Hope stepped in to pick up the cost.
