Grieving parents hit Facebook because they did not get access to the accounts of their deceased children after they died.
Lisa Bowie, whose 18-year-old son Mitchell died in 2016, did not get access to his account and said: & # 39; Facebook's lack of compassion has been terrible. & # 39;
Lorin LaFave, 51, added that the & # 39; heartbreaking & # 39; was unable to view the profile of her teenage son after he died in 2014, reports the Such a.

In 2016, Mrs. LaFave said that her son's murderer defied the family from prison after allegedly posting them in two Google blogs that blamed them for Breck's death.
She told 5Star show When Kids Kill that she had been hurt by & # 39; open letters & # 39; who question her grief about her son's death and accuse her of being a bad mother.
It is not known how Daynes could have uploaded the letters online, because prisoners are not allowed to use mobile phones and social media.
But Lorin said: & # 39; I know it is him, because there is only information that he and Breck would know. & # 39;

Mother Lisa, 54, explained how she begged Facebook to give her access to her son Mitchell's account after he died in Redcar's home in Redcar in 2016.
An investigation into Mitchell's death revealed that he had spoken to a girl online.
His family thinks his Facebook girlfriend was a person who used a fake profile – an online phenomenon known as catfishing.
Mother Lisa Bowie also hit Facebook when they said their & # 39; lack of compassion … was terrible & # 39; after her 18-year-old son Mitchell, pictured, died in 2016
In the days before his death, it was said that the girlfriend, named Emily, would constantly call Mitchell.
His grieving mother explained how Mitchell would activate and deactivate his Facebook account because of the difficult relationship he had.
Mrs. Bowie said she & # 39; disgusted & # 39; was that she could not access her son's account and added that & # 39; the lack of compassion from Facebook was terrible & # 39 ;.

However, a month after her daughter's death, Angie was blocked for her account.
She said: & # 39; Facebook has no idea how devastating it is to be blocked and ignored if you lose a child. It was her dying wish that we continue to use her Facebook. & # 39;

Mr. Russell is still trying to access the cell phone of his 14-year-old daughter, who is dragged by the police two years after her death.
Molly was found dead in her bedroom in 2017 after allegedly viewing troubling self-damaging images on Instagram, which is owned by Facebook.
As the family continues to look for answers, Mr. Russell said that the phone information about the days prior to his daughter's death could help him and his wife close.
In the aftermath of her death, Molly's iPhone was handed over to Apple technicians who tried to access its material, but they failed to crack its complex coding.
Molly & # 39; s father Ian said that his daughter's data should naturally return to her parents because she died without a will and all her possessions went to them. Pictured: Molly as a young child
During the judicial investigation, the coroner demanded that it be given to the police for investigation – a request that Molly & # 39; s parents had to comply with.
Although the physical belongings of the schoolgirl passed to her mother and father, digital data did not, Russell claimed.
He told the sun: & She died without a will, she was fourteen, and everything else naturally returned to us as her parents. This also applies to her data. & # 39;
A Facebook spokeswoman told FEMAIL: & # 39; We do not allow anyone to register with another, even after they have died, to protect the security and privacy of the information of the deceased.
& # 39; We understand that there may be a valid legal reason to access the account and in those cases we will work closely with the relevant authorities. & # 39;
