A year and a half after her death, few would argue 6-year-old Kendrea Johnson’s needed help. She was found in the bedroom of her Brooklyn Park foster home, hanging from her bunk bed by a jump rope. 

“It doesn't happen often, but kids under 10 do commit suicide,” says civil rights attorney, Jeff Montpetit.

Montpetit is representing Johnson's grandmother Mary Broadus who is now suing Hennepin County along with Family Alternatives, a non-profit placement center, and Lifespan, a day treatment program. She's also suing Johnson's foster mother, Tannise Nawaqvou.
