An eleven year old boy found hanged in family’s backyard garden. Was it a suicide or a murder?
Mathew James was the name of the 11-year-old boy who was reported missing by his family sometime ago. The little boy was reported to have disappeared from his home in the town of Pensford in Bristol England.
Police mounted an intense search for Mathew the moment he was reported missing. The authorities searched and searched all in the aim of finding the little boy safe sound. And finally the relentless efforts made by the police to find little Mathew proved successful, for they finally found him, but sadly not as they expected to find him. Mathew’s body was discovered hanging in his family’s back garden.
The 11-year-old boy was believed to have been found in the backyard garden at precisely 8pm, but according to the Coroner’s office he was confirmed dead at 8.45pm.
According to a police spokesman inquiries into the circumstances surrounding the unfortunate death of Mathew James are still ongoing although investigators strongly believe that the boy’s death is not suspicious. According to the police the case will now be transferred to the coroner.
Accordingly, the investigation into little Matthew’s death has been opened at a Coroner’s Court to actually find the cause of his unfortunate death.
There two likely things the Coroner’s report is likely to come up with.
The first one being that Mathew James committed suicide and the second one being that he was murdered.
But from look of things and from reports by the police it seems the latter situation is highly unlikely.
If indeed the 11-year-old boy committed suicide as police suspect then I can’t help but feel so sad for the lives we are giving our kids today – life so bad some can’t take it no more they begin to contemplate suicide. It is really a sad development.
