A North Texas teenager has passed away after suffering severe burns to more than 90 percent of her body.

Madison Lewis’ mother said the 17-year-old passed away Saturday night.

The Jacksboro teen was severely burned weeks ago at a gathering over the holiday break.

Lewis was standing near a burn barrel when her mother said another teen threw a pan filled with gasoline onto the fire.

Lewis was in a medically-induced coma and had undergone multiple surgeries at Parkland Hospital in Dallas.

Her mother said she was taken out of the coma by doctors and made some small movements with her tongue earlier this week, but was then put back into her medically-induced coma.

In a group, Madison’s Mission to healing, an update was provided on her fight to survive.

“Update on this little fighter we have. Doctors came in lastnight to tell us they  did all they could do, we sat around Maddy allnight and prayed,” one member wrote December 27th.

“As of 7am her labs have made a slight turnaround. So with that being said the burn team has decided to take her to the OR in the next 30/45 mins to do more debreament to her skin. Every little move is critical during this procedure. So I’m asking EVERYONE to stop to say a prayer for Madison Lewis,”

Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be as Madison Lewis passed away.

“I want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers for my beautiful granddaughter  Madison Lewis but I’m sorry to say that she succumbed to her injuries about 1:30 this morning baby girl Grandpa love you is going to miss you RIP Madison Lewis,” her grandfather Garry Rhodes wrote on Facebook.

Madison Lewis Gofundme was set up after that to help with funeral expenses.

Madison Lewis obituary

madison lewis obituary

Madison Lewis was a North Texas teen from Jacksboro who was left fighting for her life after a boy threw gasoline over a fire they were all standing by.

17-year-old Madison Lewis was hospitalized after suffering severe burns over 90 percent of her body.

Madison Lewis was a senior at Jacksboro High School, an online obituary said.

Two weeks ago, at the start of holiday break, Madison Lewis was with friends, gathered around a burn barrel when a boy threw something into the fire -a pan full of gasoline.

Speaking on the incident, Madison Lewis’ mother said: “I thought it was a cup at first, but now I found out that it was an actual pan full of gasoline into the barrel, and they say that it just exploded and just went in her direction,” said Ericca Hammond. 

“It was devastating. Completely burned her whole body.”

Madison Lewis was hospitalized at Parkland Hospital after the incident and underwent multiple surgeries throughout the holidays.

“This is the first year since I’ve been a mom that I didn’t wrap one Christmas gift. Not one,” said Hammond.

As she battled for her life, Madison’s mother traveled back and forth from Jacksboro to Dallas and received help from the Ronald McDonald House.

“Which is wonderful. They have just been the best to me and to my family. You know, just open arms and hugs and prayers and so much compassion that it just filled my heart full of love,” she previously said.

After several surgeries, Hammond was grateful for the support from her community and the doctors and nurses at Parkland and was praying fervently for movement from her daughter.

“She’s supposed to graduate in May and go to college in August, but she has so much more to do out here. That’s why. I mean, she’s a warrior. She is a fighter,” said Hammond. 

“That’s what we need the most right now is prayers and for her healing and her poor body.”

Doctors took Lewis Lewis off of her pain medication after four surgeries to see if she could become responsive.

However, things took a turn for the worse and she had to be placed in a medically induced coma.

Her mother said she was taken out of the coma by doctors and made some small movements with her tongue earlier this week, but was then put back into her medically-induced coma.

Unfortunately, the good news everyone was expecting did not come and a Madison Lewis obituary became necessary as she passed away.

Madison Lewis’ mother said her 17-year-old daughter died early Sunday morning surrounded by her family. 

It’s unclear what would happen to the boy involved in flaring up the fire that ended up killing Madison Lewis, but family set up a Gofundme to help with funeral expenses.

Her profile was little used as she was busy living life as a high school senior.

Madison Lewis Gofundme was necessitated by her unfortunate death, which draws parallels to Savannah Soto, another student who sadly died by being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Pregnant teen Savannah Soto was found dead alongside her boyfriend, Matthew Guerra.

Savannah Soto and her boyfriend

Savanah Soto, 18, was last seen in a Kia Optima on the 6000 block of Grissom Road in Leon Valley.

Savanah Sotos family and friends had gathered at the last place she was seen before going missing but sadly Savannah and her boyfriend where found dead.

Police announced Thursday, December 28th that the case was being investigated as a capital murder case for both individuals.

Authorities also said they were looking for two persons of interest.

18-year-old full-term pregnant teen Savanah Soto and her 22-year-old boyfriend, Matthew Guerra, were discovered dead in a Kia Optima in San Antonio on Tuesday.

An unborn child was also found deceased, police said.

The vehicle had been at that location for likely several days, police said.

Police released footage of two persons of interest being sought in connection with the case. 

One was captured driving the victims’ Kia Optima, and the other was seen driving a dark-colored pickup truck, police said.

Ray Preciado, 19 and Ramon Preciado, 53, were later arrested for the murders.

Police initially charged Christopher Ray Preciado, 19, with capital murder, but then added abuse of a corpse and alter or destroy a human corpse on Thursday. 

His father, Ramon Preciado, 53, had a charge of alter or destroy a human corpse added on after initially facing an abuse of a corpse charge for helping his son move the bodies after the murders of Savanah Soto, 18, and her boyfriend, 22-year-old Matthew Guerra, 22.

The murders took place just before midnight on Dec. 21 with Soto and Guerra killed at a different location before being transported. Her family reported her missing on Dec. 22 which was just one day before she was meant to be induced at the hospital.

Jacksboro Texas

Jacksboro is a city in Jack County, Texas, in the United States. 

Its population was 4,511 at the 2010 census.

U.S. Highways 281 and 380, and Texas State Highways 114 and 199 intersect at Jacksboro, which is the county seat of Jack County.

Jacksboro was first settled in the 1850s, with newcomers attracted by land offers from the Texas Emigration and Land Office. Originally called “Mesquiteville”, the community grew up along the banks of Lost Creek and spread out over the pastureland between Lost Creek and the waters of the West Fork of Keechi Creek. 

It was renamed “Jacksboro” in 1858, when it became the county seat, in honor of brothers William and Patrick Jack, veterans of the Texas Revolution.

Regular postal service began in 1859. Jacksboro was located on one route of the Butterfield Overland Mail.

The county was one of the few in Texas to vote against secession before the Civil War.

It continued to suffer from Native American raids until Fort Richardson was built and garrisoned in 1870 south of Jacksboro. 

The town gained national attention in 1871 when two Kiowa chiefs, Satanta and Big Tree, were tried for murder there.

The arrival of the Chicago, Rock Island & Texas Railroad in 1898 increased the town’s commercial importance to the surrounding region, enhancing it as a center of trade. The completion of highways and other roads later on also connected the town to other markets.

Fort Richardson State Historical Park is in the southern part of the city. Jacksboro claims to have the first state 4-H club, formed in the 1910s.
