Wednesday, April 30, 2014. ORANGE WALK BUREAU Reporting: A two year old boy from Orange Walk town is dead and it appears that he ingested some kind of poisonous substance.
The child has been identified as Justice Usher, a resident of the Belize/Corozal Road.
The child’s mother says little Justice was in the yard playing as she was doing laundry and hanging out clothes to dry around 10:30 this morning.
The mother says that after a while she realized that Justice was missing and then heard him crying.
