Two people arrested in Toddler murder probe.

Toddler named in Doncaster murder inquiry

A two-year-old boy, who sadly died in hospital yesterday afternoon (Thursday 9 January), has today been named as Keigan Ronnie O’Brien

Keigan was taken to hospital on Wednesday 8 January after emergency services were called to a house on Bosworth Road, Adwick, at about 11am, following reports from the ambulance service that he was in cardiac arrest.

He remained in a critical condition until yesterday afternoon when he passed away. A post-mortem examination carried out last night concluded that he died as a result of head injuries.

Two people, a 36-year-old man and a 32-year-old woman, both from Adwick, arrested on suspicion of murder remain in police custody.

Detective Chief Inspector James Axe, the Senior Investigating Officer, said: “A great deal of people will be affected by Keigan’s death and my thoughts are with his loved ones and those within the local and wider community.

“I’d please ask that their privacy is respected and people continue to be mindful of what they are posting on social media platforms to prevent any further distress.

“Our investigation is continuing, with specialist officers carrying out a number of enquiries to establish the exact circumstances surrounding this absolutely tragic incident.

“I would encourage anyone with concerns or information to please call us on 101, quoting incident number 293 of 8 January 2020.”
