Death of infant declared a major crime

Posted on 29/11/2017

The death of a baby in hospital has been declared a Major Crime, and has prompted an appeal for anyone with information that may be of value in the investigation to contact Crime Stoppers.

The infant, who was born on 25 April 2016, died in the Women’s and Children’s Hospital on Saturday as a result of injuries police allege were inflicted upon her when she was just 41 days old.

Police and Ambulance crews attended a Whyalla Stuart home after being alerted to an unresponsive baby at the address on 5 June 2016, with the baby initially treated at the Whyalla Hospital before being transferred to the Royal Adelaide Hospital with severe brain injury.

A police investigation last year led to a 27-year-old man being charged with aggravated assault causing serious harm, aggravated assault causing harm and criminal neglect, while a 23-year-old woman was charged with criminal neglect, with charges later withdrawn by the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at https://crimestopperssa.com.au/ – Information can be provided anonymously.
