A disturbing letter to the family of a teenager with autism instructing them to either "move or euthanize him" has shaken the boy's family and their community.
The anonymous note was sent to 13-year-old Max's grandmother's house in Newcastle, Ontario, on Friday, signed by "One pissed off mother."
In an interview, Max's mother, Karla Begley, couldn't keep from crying as she read the section of the hateful diatribe that suggests she kill her own son.
"The more you go on, the worse it gets," she said.
"Who says that about a child?"
