Murder probe launched into child death

Woman in her 20s arrested

Police have launched a murder investigation after the death of a young child in the Holsworthy area.

They were called to a property on Tuesday 7 January where the child was pronounced dead at the scene.

A woman in her 20s has been arrested on suspicion of murder. She has been released on police bail until April.

Police enquiries are continuing into the death.

Detective Inspector Stephanie Blundell said: “The death of any child is deeply traumatic and we would like to iterate the importance of the privacy of the family at this time.

“We therefore remind the public that it is vital that they do not speculate on the identity of either the victim or the suspect in this investigation.

“We would also like to thank the local community for their cooperation during this enquiry.”
