The family of murder victim Elizabeth Olten has filed a wrongful death suit against her killer and two mental health professionals. Olten’s mother brought the suit against Alyssa Bustamante and two staffers at Pathways Community Behavioral Healthcare.
The 9–year-old was killed near her St. Martins home and buried in a shallow grave three years ago by the teenage Bustamante, who was her neighbor. Bustamante was sentenced to life with the possibility of parole. The Pathways employees named in the suit had treated Bustamante.
