HORROR details have emerged as the investigation into the death of a homeschooled teenager continues.

Alexandru Radita died in 2013 weighing just 37 pounds after crucial evidence of his mistreatment was overlooked.

The 15-year-old from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, died of bacterial sepsis caused by starvation and untreated diabetes.

In 2017, his parents, Emil and Rodica Radita, were found guilty of first-degree murder.

They are serving 25 years of life imprisonment with no chance of parole.

Now the homeschooling system Alex was involved in has come under fire as the investigation into his death continues.

An inquest into the teenager’s death began earlier this week.

The investigation aims to find out how similar incidents can be avoided in the future.

Officials take a look at existing practices – and how they can be improved – to address when students are not enrolled in school.

When Alex was a student of the system, he reportedly did not submit any work during his fifth grade year in 2009.

As a result, his registration was withdrawn from the online school School of Hope at the end of the year.

Alex was never registered for school again.

A new practice has since been put in place that notifies school authorities when students are unregistered, according to Alberta Education field manager Christine Bouchard.

Bouchard also testified during the investigation that there are still weaknesses in schools, school boards and the Department of Education as the safeguards continue to be put in place.

She also said that while the homeschooling program has an opportunity for a government official to investigate whether a student is receiving an education, despite reports made, none has taken place.

It was also found that Alex was being kept in “deliberate isolation” by his parents and therefore had no contact with anyone who may have intervened, said Karen Horner, a judge at the Court of Queen’s Bench in Alberta.

“He had no friends or teachers or supporters or doctors or really anyone,” prosecutor Susan Pepper told the CBC.

Alex has seven surviving siblings, but their condition is unknown.

CHILDCARE PROTOCOLS ALSO REVIEWED

Nine years after Alex’s death, child care protocols are being investigated in his case to prevent the same tragic fate from befalling other children.

Although Alex’s parents have known of their son’s diagnosis since he was two years old, they have repeatedly told medical officials they did not believe their son had diabetes, according to evidence presented at their trial.

When the boy’s body was found, he was in the 0.1 percentile for a 15-year-old based on his weight and height, according to the coroner.

Alex had 44 ulcers and sores covering his body and his teeth were “rotted to stumps,” said forensic pathologist Dr. Jeffery Golfon.

A neck wound in the boy was so deep that his jawbone was exposed and his neck muscles were “nearly completely liquefied,” Gofton said.

After being hospitalized multiple times after several years of untreated diabetes, Alex was on the brink of death by the age of five.

When Alex was hospitalized in 2003, he was so ill that he was only hours away from dying of his illness.

Alex was then separated from his family for about a year and placed in the care of British Columbia Children’s Services.

However, he returned to his parents with a judge who believed Alex was being monitored by the school and health officials.

His family moved from Surrey, British Columbia to Alberta in 2009, where they fell out of the loop.

Because Alberta authorities were not informed of Alex’s file and Surrey officials were unaware of the move, Alex was vulnerable to his parents’ abuse.

Alex’s parents had an opportunity to appeal to the court before sentencing, but they declined.
