Rachel Baillie Shaw Death – End Result of E. coli – Texas Link?

The funeral of an eight-year-old British girl who is suspected of contracting E.coli when she was visiting the U.S. recently took place today – with hundreds of mourners dressed in her favorite color bright pink.

Rachel’s family – including mother Louise Baillie, 38, and father Adam Shaw, 35 – asked mourners to dress in the eight-year-old’s favorite color rather than wearing black.

Rachel died in hospital on Saturday night after contracting E. coli at the end of July. An investigation is underway as to the exact source of the bug, but it is believed she may have contracted it in the U.S. as she had recently visited her father, who lives in Texas.
