The District Prosecutor’s Office in Siedlce asked the court to extend the detention of a 20-year-old woman and her partner, suspected of murdering the woman’s 4-year-old son. Last year, the child’s body was found in Górki near Garwolin.

As the deputy spokesman of the District Prosecutor’s Office in Radom, Prosecutor Krzysztof Czyżewski, informed PAP on Tuesday, investigators on Monday applied to the court to extend the pre-trial detention of the couple for another three months.

They’re awaiting an autopsy report

When asked about the current state of the investigation, the prosecutor said that the investigators are waiting for the post-mortem opinion and the results of histopathological examination of the tissue material collected during the autopsy. Thanks to this, it will be possible to determine the cause and approximate time of death of the child. – We expect this opinion in mid-March – pointed out the prosecutor.

He added that according to one of the suspects, the child died as a result of an accident – he fell into a paddling pool filled with hot water. The boy’s mother and her cohabitant, fearing the consequences, were to refrain from calling for medical help. They hoped that the burns suffered by the child would heal on their own.

Grandma notified the police

On October 21 last year, the boy’s great-grandmother reported the child missing to the police. The woman had not seen her great-grandson for a long time and was afraid that something bad might have happened to him. For several days, police officers checked various addresses where the child with his mother and her partner could have recently stayed. A week later, in the village of Górki near Garwolin, they found the corpse of a 4-year-old boy buried in the forest.

At that time, the prosecutor’s office also announced the detention of the boy’s then 19-year-old mother and her 19-year-old partner. Both were charged with intentional homicide and arrested.
