Infarcts (DeadCells): are a result of either loss of blood supply or trauma. At her age (though artery disease is typically present in 1/2 US citizens by age 7 y/o by US autopsy data going back to the 1920s), trauma/(self or other induced abuse) to her head is overwhelmingly the likely basis. Look up brain/cerebral infarct on Google.com & be aware that most result from artery Ds./clots, decades after onset, not trauma.
