CINCINNATI (AP)– The tomb of an 8-year-old Ohio young boy who eliminated himself in January after his mother said he was bullied at school was opened to eliminate a computer tablet for prosecutors examining his suicide, authorities stated Wednesday.
The Hamilton County Coroner’s Workplace stated Gabriel Taye’s tomb was opened Wednesday to get rid of the tablet on behalf of the county prosecutor’s workplace. The tablet was buried with Gabriel because his mother wanted to ensure “he had something to play with in heaven.”
The coroner’s office declaration stated the body wasn’t disrupted and the tomb was brought back, however it had no further comment. A spokesperson for the district attorney’s workplace stated they had no instant comment.
A declaration launched Wednesday by attorneys for the kid’s family stated the household consented to the exhumation, hoping a forensic assessment of the tablet would provide more information on what occurred and since “they are so desperate for answers.”
The declaration stated the mother also requested a re-examination of her boy’s body since the exhumation was going to proceed, and was disappointed a re-examination unfortunately “wasn’t possible.”
The lawyers for the mom, Cornelia Reynolds, have actually stated she didn’t learn her son was bullied up until they saw an e-mail written by a Cincinnati authorities detective describing the scene outside a kids’ bathroom where the lawyers say Gabriel was knocked unconscious. He hanged himself 2 days later on at his house on Jan. 26.
The Cincinnati Public Schools district has said the boy told staff he had passed out and never ever said he had actually been bullied or attacked. The district last month released copies of a choppy 24-minute-long video that reveals one young boy bullying other trainees. The mom’s attorneys say he pressed Gabriel into a wall, knocking him unconscious.
The district likewise noted that police had evaluated the video and no charges were filed.
County Prosecutor Joe Deters has since said that his workplace is checking out possible charges in the case, and the coroner stated previously that she was reopening the investigation into Gabriel’s suicide.
“Gabe was buried with his tablet because his mom wished to make certain he had something to play with in heaven,” inning accordance with the declaration.
“She is disappointed that a re-examination was not possible, but hopes his tablet will yield some responses,” Reynolds’ lawyer, Jennifer Branch, said in the declaration.
