Police investigating death of four-year-old boy

Updated January 4, 2016 

The Hawkesbury OPP are investigating the death of a four-year-old boy who lived in Wendover. They say police responded to a “medical distress call” at a home in the area at about 8:30 a.m. on December 28.

The boy was later pronounced deceased in hospital. A post-mortem was scheduled for Thursday, December 29 in Ottawa. As of January 4, Constable Mario Gratton of the Hawkesbury OPP said no results were available. The death is being investigated because of the age of the child, and because most “sudden deaths” are investigated by police, he said. He added children are never pronounced deceased at home, and are instead brought to the hospital.

The Hawkesbury OPP Crime Unit, OPP Forensic Identification Services, and coroner’s office are involved in the investigation.
