In a bizarre incident, an eight year-old girl is suspected of having had a hand in the death of a one-year-old toddler.
The body of Korey Brown was found hidden in a bedroom of a home day care center in Michigan, US, on Friday, April 14.
A five-year-old boy is thought to have been the only witness as to what transpired because the kids were left unsupervised for about two hours.
The local police chief, Jeffrey Lewis, said the cause of Korey’s death is still unknown, adding that it was likely that the girl went to attend to the toddler when he started crying.
Lewis also said: ” This person that was involved in the death probably felt something was wrong. If you’re a child and break something, you try to hide it.”
