Cleveland parents of Aliana DeFreeze, 14, received $ 1M compensation following the 2017 murder


The family of a Cleveland girl who was tortured, raped and murdered by a sex offender while attending school five years ago has received a $ 1 million settlement in a lawsuit filed against her school and the city, according to a report.

LOVEBYLIFE 8 in Cleveland reports that Alianna DeFreeze’s parents filed a wrongful death lawsuit in 2019 after her school failed to notify her in January 2017 of class absenteeism.

The corpse of a 14-year-old girl was found days after she was killed in an abandoned home. Her mother said she did not know her daughter was absent from school until 4pm and by that time the family had lost precious time to find her.

“You know, you don’t know when it will hit you,” Aliana’s father, Damon DeFreeze, told WOIO-TV in Cleveland last year about how he was grieving. “I drive, it hits me. I cry for no reason. You know, when I work, it hits you at work. You know, it’s just, it’s never over, but I’m still standing.”

Alien’s killer Christopher Whitaker appealed his death sentence to the Ohio Supreme Court last year.

Damon DeFreeze has always favored life imprisonment for his daughter’s killer because “death is so sure, so quick. You deserve to feel and sit there and think about what you did,” according to WOIO.

“Death is too sure, too quick. You deserve to feel and sit there and think about what you’ve done.”
