The investigation into the suspicious death of a five-year-old boy continues.

In the early hours of Friday, July 10, 2015, a child was brought into the Alberta Children’s Hospital suffering from injuries that family members attributed to numerous accidents. Hospital 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 confirmed that the child had swelling and bruising all over his body, and numerous other serious injuries.

The child was identified as Eneas Emilio PERDOMO, 5, of Calgary.

The investigation has now determined Emilio was residing with non-biological family members and that he was in good health when he was brought to live with them in February of 2015. Investigators are working to develop an accurate timeline in relation to what may have happened to Emilio since his arrival.

A suspect has not been identified, however, the investigation is now able to focus on family members who had exclusive opportunity to Emilio during the time he sustained the injuries.
