UPDATE: Police interviewing brother and aunt of dead young sisters
Police investigators are this evening interviewing the brother and the aunt of the four- and six-year-old sisters who died today after they were taken to the Bustamante Hospital with blood and mucus coming from their mouth and nose.
The identities of the girls have not been released.
Police sources say the girls were also unresponsive and parts of their bodies were blue when they were taken to the hospital’s emergency room by a relative.
Doctors later pronounced them dead.
A police spokesperson told The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre that investigators have some idea what happened to the sisters, but say this is based on reports from doctors who examined them.
As a result, the spokesperson says a post mortem exam will be conducted to determine the cause of death.
