By BBN Staff: The 11-year-old child who was reportedly found hanging from a rope in his room died as a result of “asphyxiation by hanging” police reports.
While it appears to be a suicide, Orange Walk police say they are not ruling out other possibilities and the investigation continues.
Meanwhile, conflicting reports are arising and indicate that the boy and his four year old baby brother were playing when somehow, at some point the older child was chocked with a belt.
Authorities say they are looking at all angles since the child died while he and his younger brother were left at home unsupervised.
The only official statement police have so far is the one given to them by the children’s uncle, which they received after the boy had been moved from his house and taken to the hospital.
