SIGN THE PETITION: Clyde Cancer Cluster claims 6th victim

A local neighborhood in shock. Dozens of kids sick, and now, another child has died.

19 Action News uncovering new details in the investigation into What's Killing Their Kids.

13-year-old Haden Kistler is now the sixth victim of the Clyde Cancer Cluster. More than 35 kids sick, and the State of Ohio still can't figure out what's going on.

A total of six dead kids in Sandusky County who are part of the Clyde Cancer Cluster including 11-year-old Alexa Brown, 6-year-old Kole Keller, 4-year-old Jeff Ranzenberger, and now, 13-year-old Haden Kistler who just died on Saturday.

Haden's dad lives in Freemont, which is right next to Clyde.

"He loves John Deere tractors," Haden's father John said. "He loves going and watching sprint car races."

Haden started getting headaches back in 2009.

"The tumor was so big it was starting to put pressure on the brain. It was about the size of a golf ball," John said.

Haden lived in Idaho with his mother, but spent summers with dad in Freemont.

In 2010, Haden's type of cancer landed him into the Clyde Cancer Cluster. 35 kids sick, now six dead. Haden's family buried him on Wednesday.

In 2007, the Ohio Health Department said solving the mystery of what's killing these kids was their number one priority. Earlier this year, Reporter Scott Taylor sat down with ODH's new director.

But is that still the case?

"I hate to assign highest priority to any topic cause that assumes you know the future and I don't know how the year is going to play out well enough to tell you that," said Director Ted Wymyslo of the Ohio Health Department.
