Mystery deepens in death of two children found dead inside police station

South Sudan NEWS PORTAL (JUBA CITY)

Mystery surrounds death of minors

A post mortem examination conducted by Chief Government Pathologist Johansen Oduor in the death of two minors came back inconclusive.

According to Oduor, an autopsy could not explain the death of the two children aged 3 and 4, because the bodies were badly decomposed.

The speed of decomposition, however, varies depending on the environment, and the heat inside a parked car can make a body decompose faster.

More tests

Oduor also said there were no visible injuries or fractured bones to suggest any kind of trauma.

The government chemist has received samples from the bodies for an in-depth test into the death of the two minors.

Alvina and Jacktone went missing on June 11, and in a bizarre twist of events, their bodies were discovered at the police station where their parents reported them missing.
