Detectives have arrested and charged a man in relation to the death of a 5-month-old boy in Brisbane’s bayside last year.
Operation Papa Planten was a joint and protracted investigation by the Wynnum Child Protection Investigation Unit and the Child Trauma Unit within the State Crime Command’s Child Abuse and Sexual Crime Group.
A Triple Zero call was made around 8.50am on March 28 2017 stating that a baby boy at a Cleveland address had been found unresponsive.
Police and emergency services attended the address, however the boy was declared deceased at the scene.
A 32-year-old Woodridge man was arrested this morning and has since been charged with one count of murder.
He is expected to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court tomorrow.
