    Thank you Makara.

    From your link above:
    The boy was initially reported to be aged nine by the caller who phoned emergency services but identity documents later revealed him to be 10.
    How come the caller didn't know his correct age? Possibly it was an extended family member or friend who called? Surely his aunt would've known his age, maybe she just made a mistake.

    This poor boy I hope we get some answers about what happened soon.
    I wonder what medical condition his aunt has?
    Apparently he lived with his aunt with his two other siblings.

    Brisbane boy's death: Post-mortem tests may take several days, Queensland Health says

    The results of a post-mortem examination on a 10-year-old Brisbane boy who died in suspicious circumstances at home may not be released for several days, Queensland Health says.

    Family members discovered the boy's body in a bedroom at a Mackenzie home just before 5:00pm on Sunday and called an ambulance.

    Paramedics believe he may have died several hours before they were called.

    He confirmed the child was 'definitely alive' at 10.30am on Sunday before relatives who discovered the body called triple-zero ...

    Acting Detective Inspector Tony Geary said the boy's aunt was the only person at home with him. She is yet to be interviewed by police as she remains in hospital ...
    It is said the siblings are helping with the investigation. I wonder where they were at the time the boy was found.

    I've been wondering about this poor kid. I saw they are treating his death as suspicious but don't have autopsy results for a few days?
    Curiosity killed the cat...but satisfaction brought it back.

    I haven't been able to find any updates, has anyone else?

    Poor boy I hope his siblings are surrounded by love and support.

    Still nothing at all about this. We drive past the house regularly and it's just so sad.
