Nar­ro­gin link to baby boy de­ceased in Perth’s Golden Bay

Narrogin Observer - - Front Page -

Homi­cide Squad de­tec­tives are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the death of a baby boy in Golden Bay, who was al­legedly the sub­ject of an as­sault in Nar­ro­gin last year.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice the one-yearold boy who died on Sun­day in the south­ern Perth sub­urb is the same baby who was al­legedly sub­jected to an as­sault in Nar­ro­gin in Oc­to­ber last year.

A man from Man­durah was charged with griev­ous bod­ily harm over the al­leged at­tack last year af­ter baby Nathaniel was taken to Nar­ro­gin Re­gional Hospi­tal with in­juries.

On that oc­ca­sion he was trans­ferred to Princess Mar­garet Hospi­tal and later re­leased.

At that time, the baby suf­fered cat­a­strophic head in­juries at just seven weeks old. The baby’s mother told the Ob

server in Jan­uary this year Nathaniel had sur­vived de­spite warn­ings from doc­tors that he may die from the in­juries.

Po­lice said in­ves­ti­ga­tions into the death were on­go­ing and would not re­veal whether or not the death was in any way linked to the pre­vi­ous al­le­ga­tions.

No ar­rests or charges have been made at this stage.
