  • So terrible – bet the mother gets off lightly. That poor child would have been abused well before the final time when he died, methinks.


  • A father misses out on his child growing up and they will probably blame her mental state or the drugs she was taking.


  • What sadness, poor child.
    God knows what happened.


  • poor little fella, R.I.P. buddy


  • One can only guess the reason for this as there is no details at all. I noticed the woman has been detained though.


  • It looks like she was the mother of the boy and was being treated for depression. Poor kid. :-(


  • My nan has a house around the corner from there. Very scary when these things happen so close.
