By Aaron Humes: Belmopan father, Troy Banner, is speaking to police again over the death of his two month old son Thevane, who died at the Western Regional Hospital after experiencing breathing complications.
But a post-mortem examination appears to have turned the case on its head, after findings that baby Thevane died as a result of a “fracture to the head and back, multiple skull fracture, and head trauma consistent to Battered Child Syndrome.”
Banner says Thevane, two months, was choking and had no pulse when he reached the hospital, and the doctors gave him four to five doses of adrenaline to get his heart rate going, which he considers may have been too much.
But according to Dr. Marvin Manzanero, who spoke to Channel 5 News, such medication is standard and others would have been added until it was clear there was no response. Battered child syndrome would not have resulted from one incident but multiple, he added.
Banner suggested he would either have to be “a damn fool” or a “crazy man” to harm his child, and that he was being framed.
Today police reported that a file will be sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions for advice on potential charges.
It has been noted that a similar allegations was made involving another child a few years ago by another woman who bore a child for Banner. ASP Alejandro Cowo noted that a statute of limitations exists for indictable offenses and that child, to his knowledge, is still alive. In the current case, however, once they are directed to charge, they will.
