Police lay charges in homicide of Emilio Perdomo

The Calgary Police Service has charged two individuals in the homicide of a five-year-old boy that occurred last July.

Early on Friday, July 10, 2015, a child was brought into the Alberta Children’s Hospital suffering from injuries that family members attributed to numerous accidents. Medical staff observed swelling and bruising all over his body, which was not consistent with the activities of a child his age.

On Friday, July 17, 2015, the child died from his injuries and an autopsy was completed. The autopsy found that the child died as a result of multiple blunt-force trauma injuries. Police later determined that his death was a homicide.

The victim was identified as Eneas Emilio PERDOMO, age five, of Calgary.

Allan Edgardo PERDOMO LOPEZ and Carolina Del Carmen PERDOMO, both of Calgary, are charged with manslaughter in connection with this case. They were taken into custody on Friday, July 22, 2016, without incident and will next appear in court on DATE.

The investigation into the homicide of Emilio is ongoing and anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the Calgary Police Service non-emergency line at 403-266-1234 or the Homicide Unit Tip Line at 403-428-8877.
