This is a really heartbreaking story that I've watched unfold since Dr. Treg started the thread on the Paranormal Studies forum. My best guess is
that Dr. Treg and Fiona are/were one and the same. I could very well be wrong, that is just my best guess.
I was looking at that the autism lead with some skepticism, but it might be the same Dr. Treg as the one here. I didn't really think so until I saw
him/her using language regarding "ignorance" that we often find here on ATS.
Here is a post I found from Dr. T dated February 23, 2012. I copied it below in case it rings any bells for anyone in terms of identifying a
connection between the Dr. Treg at the Autism site and the Fiona Lords case. There are many replies from him/her in this particular post -- this is
just one of them:

It is now recognised that all psychiatric diseases are characterised by immune dysfunction.
On that matter all physical diseases are also characterised by immune dysfunction.
One of my colleagues remarked that “all diseases are allergic”. Let us not make autism unique.
At present research is heading towards
I find it interesting that autism is associated with increased numbers of dendritic spines of neurons (or leaves as I call them) and reduced pruning
of these spines compared to normal children.
95% of the volume of a neuron is dendritic arbor (tree).
Perhaps this is why there is an association with large head circumference in children with autism.
To deny that there is no immune dysfunction in autism because of lack of evidence is argument from ignorance or argumentum ad ignorantiam or “appeal
to ignorance” (where “ignorance” stands for: “lack of evidence to the contrary”), is a fallacy in informal logic. It asserts that a
proposition is true because it has not yet been proven false, it is “generally accepted” (or vice versa).
The fact is that immune dysfunction is being decribed in autism.
On another point it has been discovered that a non-direct brain insult (LPS) can cause abnormalities in the immune system in the brain.
I find the research fascinating and realise that these are very early days.
Perhaps autism will turn out to be many diseases rather like rheumatism in the 1800s turned out to be a whole number of joint diseases.
My heartfelt sympathy to all that knew Fiona. At this point, I hope they can get some answers that bring them some degree of peace.
