A non-sentient being: Mineral? Plant? Animal? Human? None of these.

So the being was alive (as in, an organism, correct?), but was not sentient, not a plant, and not an animal? Also since he didn't die of a disease but the being killed him, it wasn't a virus/bacteria. Was it a fungus? Was it a single being or a collective of beings?

For the child's manner of death...
poisoning?
blunt trauma?
drowning/suffocation?
hypothermia?
blood loss?
overheating?
heart attack?
liver failure?
other specific organ failure?
brain damage?
unknown? is it relevant how he died? or is the exact medical result of what happened irrelevant?

Is the "angel" a corporeal being?

I had to go to wikipedia to find the proper name of the thing, but I decided to post that rather than its common name as I didn't want to be too obvious, especially as I might still be wrong. I doubt it, lol, but I might still be wrong.

Alternatively, how about the Weeping Angels from Doctor Who? Or the Hosts from the episode "Voyage of the Damned"? *shudder*

Okay, now I want it to be the Weeping Angels. Those are - hands-down - some of the scariest monsters ever!

I knew after the first few posts that this would be too easy! Then again, you guys are the experts.

*********SPOILER**********
The young child ingested a destroying angel mushroom, which resembles the common edible variety, while walking around in his backyard. The extremely poisonous fungus was the cause of his death.

Quick, yes. Still, a good puzzle! Sometimes it's almost eerie how fast your fellow puzzlers can hone in on relevant details.
