…Stepfather, mother arrested
Police have arrested the mother and stepfather of a four-year-old boy after a post mortem (PM) examination revealed that the child was sodomised and then struck to the head.
The PM was done on the remains of Alex Prince this morning at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) by Government Pathologist, Dr. Nehaul Singh.
The result showed that the child died from blunt trauma to the head. He had also been raped.
Last Monday, the little boy was discovered by his stepfather in an unconscious state with blood oozing from his head at their Silver Hill, Soesdyke/Linden Highway home. He was not wearing any clothing.
The child was left in the care of his stepfather by his mother.
Guyana Standard has been informed that the suspect alleged that he left the deceased at home to go to a nearby shop. When he returned home, he found him unresponsive.
An alarm was raised and the child, while on his way to the hospital, died.
The suspects were arrested this morning after the findings from the PM were handed over to the police.
The investigation is still ongoing.
