The police in St. Elizabeth now have a 33 year old woman in custody in connection with the death of an 11 year old boy in Claremont in the parish yesterday. Investigators believe the woman is mentally challenged.

The boy has been identified as Ryan Arnold of Claremont. The police report that Ryan was sent on an errand by his mother yesterday afternoon. When he did not return home as expected, the police were called and a search was launched for him.

The police later found the boy in bushes last night suffering from several injuries. He was taken to the Black river Hospital where he died while receiving treatment.
