   (Trenton, MI)  --  A nine-year-old Michigan girl who gained national attention after she was taunted by a neighbor has died from Huntington's Disease.
   Kathleen Edward of Trenton was thrown into the national spotlight after posts on the social networking website "Facebook" made fun of the girl and her mother, who also died from the disease in 2009.
   The pictures and comments made by neighbor Jennifer Petcov led to an outpouring of support for Kathleen.
   Funeral arrangements are pending.
