Police in Cambridge, St. James are this afternoon awaiting the results of forensic testing of blood stains found in the home of 7 year old Aden Rose.
The seven year old boy was found dead in bushes at the back of his home yesterday morning.
He had a chop wound to the head.
A large pool of blood was reportedly found on a bed inside the boy’s home.
The police are seeking to confirm from the forensic testing whether the blood belongs to Aden.
The boy’s mother has since been charged with child neglect.
Acting Head of the St. James Police, Superintendent Carlos Russell, told our news centre this morning that once the boy’s mother has been able to secure legal counsel, a question and answer session will be held.
It’s understood the police are receiving support from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution, DPP.
Reports are Aden’s body was found by residents about 6:45 a.m. yesterday at the back of his home.
They raised an alarm and the police were summoned.
The discovery has left members of the community outraged, with many questioning who would harm the boy.
Aden was a Grade One student at the Bickersteth Primary School in the parish.
