Procyon has released a statement via their Facebook Page.
“Some very sad news from Procyon. Phoenix Rose passed away yesterday. She appeared to be healing and doing very well and yesterday morning the volunteers found she had passed away overnight. We are not sure of the cause, possibly from the abuse, something occurred internally. I want to thank everyone who donated to her because it allowed us to give her every possible chance for recovery.”
Barrie Police Service continue their investigation into the person(s) responsible for the attack on Phoenix Rose. Anyone with information is asked to contact police or to remain anonymous contact Crime Stoppers of Simcoe Dufferin Muskoka at 1-800-222-TIPS or online at www.tipsubmit.ca
