Linden boy, 4, died of head trauma, was raped
The death of a four-year-old child in Linden is being treated as a murder after an autopsy showed that he died of head trauma and had been raped.
The dead child has been identified as Alex Prince, whose mother and step-father have been taken into custody. The child had been left in the custody of his step-father at Silver Hill, Linden-Soesdyke Highway, before being found dead last week Monday.
Senior Superintendent Kurleigh Simon, Commander of Region Four (b) (Eccles – Moblissa), last evening told Stabroek News that the child’s death is being treated as a homicide.
