Quest DNA test leads to lawsuit

During the peaceful moments of Christian Millare’s short life, he’d curl up next to his mother, Amy Williams, as she read Dr. Seuss books out loud. She rocked him to sleep to the songs of Josh Groban and taught him sign language. But those blissful times were often interrupted by Christian’s violent and mysterious seizures, which began when he was 4 months old. After one final seizure, he died on Jan. 5, 2008, at age 2.

Now, after more than a year of researching Christian’s case, Williams believes his death could have been prevented if not for an erroneous DNA test result by one of the world’s largest laboratories — which she’s suing. “To find out all that I found out is just a chop to the throat,” Williams told BuzzFeed News.
