Desperate for a new life

ALBERTON - She’s the unintentional victim of an alleged satanic ritual.

Bronwyn Grammar was doused in petrol and set alight in October 2011. Her best friend, Kirsty Theologo, died a week later in hospital.

Grammar has lived to tell the tale, and for the time being she’s staying with Kirsty's aunt.

But after the trial, she has nowhere to go.

At 16, Grammar's had more than her fair share of hardship.

When she was just a child her father murdered three people -- including his own mother -- leaving her mother to take care of six young children.

"It just seemed like all the focus was going out on the smaller children, and I went out looking for my own love," said Grammar.

Grammar found solace in her relationship with Kirsty Theologo.  

But the ordeal has left her desperate for a new life.

"I can't go back home because of the environment there.

"I just want to go to boarding school and start my life over, because I've had 16 years of hell and I really do deserve a better chance."

Child Protection Services Director Musa Mbere said an investigator will assess Grammar's situation.

"We might have to look at someone sponsoring her, for her to go to boarding school," said Mbere.

Four of Grammar's friends are currently on trial for her attempted murder.
