Today a source said:
“It is disgusting that she should take to the streets again after being sentenced.
“He showed no remorse about what happened or how Jordan died.”
Jordan’s case shocked the country when details surfaced in 2018.
Apparently there was no reason for the vulnerable but sane young man to starve to death other than neglect.
When his mother Dawn, 45, finally called 999 in June 2016, he was locked in a bed on the living room floor, covered in deep wounds and even wearing diapers.
A police search also uncovered the remains of Jordan’s younger brother, who had been hidden in a backpack in a closet for 14 years.
The case has raised serious questions about how the dysfunctional family might have escaped the authorities’ radar.
Jordan’s sister Abigail Burling, 25, was acquitted of manslaughter by juries but found guilty of causing or permitting the death of a vulnerable person.
His grandmother Denise was also convicted of murder.
Until his death, Jordan lost dramatic weight for about six months without illness and ate five supermarket smoothies a day.
During the four-week trial in 2018, Attorney Nicholas Lumley QC told the jury: “The guilt rests with each of the accused.
“What the paramedics’ eyes saw was a shocking and disturbing scene.
“Jordan lay helpless on an air mattress in a crowded living room.
“He was little more than skin and bones, weighed 37 kg and less than six stones. He was wearing a dirty diaper under his pajamas.
The nutritionist said he had never seen such malnutrition in 26 years and compared the state of the body to those in extermination camps during World War II.
“His heart stopped, his life could not be saved. He died in this room.”
Cranston now lives in a secured refuge in the north west of England.
A source said, “Given what he was sentenced for, this doesn’t sound like a place he should live.”
However, one MOJ spokesman insisted, “This adjustment will allow us to closely monitor those released from prison, reducing the chances of their return.”
