The body of Jahi McMath, the 13-year-old California girl declared brain dead after suffering complications from routine tonsil surgery, has been released to her mother by coroners, the hospital that had been treating her said in a statement Sunday.

The Eighth-grader was released to the coroner who then released her into the custody of her mother Latasha Winkfield as per court order, Dr. David Durand, Chief of Pediatrics at the Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland said in a statement. He added that her destination is unknown. 

“Our hearts go out to the family as they grieve for this sad situation and we wish them closure and peace,” he said.

Did they find a place or home to transport her to? I thought the mom had 24 hours to find a place that would care for her... Yes, It's incredibly sad all the way around and I hope lawsuits are mounting.
