Police in New South Wales are taking a fresh look at the circumstances surrounding the death of a boy whose body was found in the back of a police car.
The New South Welsh Coroner has been told that the toddler was not in custody when his body was discovered on Sunday morning.
A police officer and a coroner have been investigating the death, which has sparked outrage from many in the community.
The boy’s mother, who did not want to be identified, said the family had no idea the boy had died until he had been taken to the coroner’s court.
“My son died in the car, he was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The only thing we know is that his body has been removed,” she said.
Police have released no information about the circumstances of the death.
Ms Tabora said the police had been investigating her son’s death for about a month and were investigating the circumstances as they were.
“The police told us that they were going to come and get him tomorrow,” she told the ABC.
She said she would be calling the family next week to tell them that their son’s body had been removed.
What is a coronial inquest?
The coronial process involves coronial investigators, a jury of nine, hearing the case.
Who is the family?
Mr Taboras son was 15 years old and lived in the town of Winton in New West.
He was last seen on Friday, October 28, when he was seen with a female relative.
His body was later found in a police vehicle at a police station about three kilometres away from where he was last known to be in the vehicle.
In a statement to police, the coroner said he was “disgusted and disturbed” at the death and that he would be making no further comment at this stage.
Mr Smith’s father, Andrew Smith, said he had not spoken to his son since his disappearance.
“He was in my arms for days and he was going through hell,” Mr Smith said.
“He was a beautiful young boy and he went missing.
There are people out there who want to know why I don’t know.”
Mr Brown, who was at the funeral, said his son was a good boy.
“It was horrible, it was terrible,” Mr Brown said.
