Ilmiya Yarullina lived as a single mom in Washington, DC, with her son, Casey. Yarullina told the Washington Post that she struggled to get help for her son. In middle school, Casey began experiencing anxiety and stomach aches. Soon after, he discovered drugs and smoked marijuana to help soothe his symptoms. It wasn’t long before Casey was brutally beaten and robbed by teenagers he tried to buy pot from. Health officials eventually diagnosed the teenager with post-traumatic stress disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and ADHD.
Casey’s drug use was so advanced that Yarullina didn’t know what to do, so she threatened to kick her son out of the house if it didn’t stop. That’s when Casey, then 19-years-old, ended up so strung out on drugs that he allegedly broke into the home of the Peruvian ambassador. When confronted by the Secret Service in the house, they ordered him to drop a pole several times. When he refused, they tasered him. The authorities said that he continued to charge the officers. They ultimately fired their guns, killing the young man.
Yarullina said schools, health professionals, and psychiatrists couldn’t reach Casey. It was too late. She said the problem could have been solved sooner, but there were no resources to help her son. She added that too many young kids are lost, and schools need to add more preventative mental health measures.
