Sniffing suspected of having killed boy, 12


Initial investigations have led police to believe that the use of inhalants were a factor in the death of a boy, aged 12, on Saturday evening in the center of Alice Springs.
Southern Watch Commander Drew Slape says the boy was found unconscious by members of the public in the carpark between Railway Terrace and Bath Street.
Her says police commenced first aid and the child was taken to the Alice Springs Hospital by St John Ambulance.
“Despite the best efforts of attending police, paramedics and medical staff, tragically the young male has passed away,” says Cdr Slape.
“Anything related to inhalant or substance abuse is of grave concern to police and we ask if members of the community witness this behaviour to report it on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.”
