What really happened to Heather O’Rourke?

I just found this article from AP back in 1988, the year Heather passed . Several medical specialists and even her manager were puzzled by cause of death. It was not congenital, present from birth , that’s for sure.

The article claims there was no prior indication of intestinal troubles, but other sources indicate O’Rourke was being treated for Crohn’s Disease before her death. Because she was believed to have Crohn’s, she wasn’t tested for other issues. Her facial features were puffier than usual in Poltergeist 3, due to the steroids she was receiving.

The year Heather passed what?

A kidney stone? Her oral examination for her PhD?

R1, the cause of death was listed as congenital. I am aware she was treated a year before her death , when she failed the MGM physical.

I don’t believe Heather’s inflammatory bowel issues were from molestation . I do believe that Heather was very sick and according to her mom she didn’t complain, but she physically looked ill and I believe her mother should’ve taken proactive action.

Poor kid. She must have really suffered. She probably felt obligated to work, being the family breadwinner from the age of 5 or so.

R8, she was making pretty decent money and they lived in an apartment in Santee , which is a ghetto suburb of San Diego. I was also perplexed at how he’ll Heather was for a long time for growing up in one of the sunniest parts of southern California.

I have heard the pedophile molestations story more than once. It sounds plausible given what we know now.

According to "Enty" (Entertainment Lawyer) she was murdered. By Spielberg no less. He even says her remains were stolen from her crypt in Westwood Village Memorial Park in the dead of night. Ever been there? Surrounded by bustling traffic and high-rise condo towers.

That Spielberg story is an insult to the intelligence and Heather’s memory. She loved working for Spielberg and adored Henry Winkler .

Heather was very bright, a voracious reader . She was down to earth and quite well liked in her public school. She wanted to be a director And I believe she would’ve been a great one. She was misdiagnosed and her parents failed to get help in time. She didn’t have to die.

Little girls really aren't physically built to have a fist or a bottle up there.
