Kathleen Edward Huntington's DiseaseKathleen Edward Huntington’s Disease, The 9-year-old Michigan girl taunted on Facebook by neighbors while she suffered from a terminal disease died Wednesday, according to WXYZ-TV.

Kathleen Edward of Trenton, Mich., died from Huntington’s disease, the same genetic degenerative brain disorder that took her mother’s life in 2009.

Back in late 2010, 33-year-old Jennifer Petkov, who lived on the same block as Kathleen’s family, allegedly began cyberbullying the little girl.

On a Facebook page under Petkov’s name, there were images of Kathleen’s mother, Laura, in the arms of the Grim Reaper and Kathleen above a set of crossbones. Neighbors also accused Petkov and her husband Scott of building a coffin, putting it on their truck and driving past the Edward home, honking the horn.

When asked by a reporter from Detroit television station WJBK why she posted the photos, Jennifer Petkov said it was for “personal satisfaction” and because it upset the child’s grandmother. At the time, the two were locked in a longstanding feud that Kathleen’s grandmother said involved Petkov’s being upset because she believed her children weren’t invited to a birthday party the grandmother threw.
