The cause of her death has not yet been determined by the medical examiner's office. She was adopted by the Indian-American couple, Wesley and Sini Mathews, from an orphanage in India last year. Her adoptive parents lost custody of their biological child after Sherin went missing. Her parents appeared before a court yesterday for a long Child Protective Services (CPS) custody hearing about their biological daughter. Prosecution pressed Sini about the previous CPS involvement, alleging Sherin earlier had a broken femur, elbow and tibia, but she did not confirm the allegations.
