(LOOP JAMAICA) – A post-mortem report has revealed that the death of nine-year-old Westmoreland student, Kadijah Saunders, last Tuesday, was caused by manually strangulation.

But, according to a close family member, the police have not informed them whether the grade three New Works Infant and Primary School student, whose body was found partially nude, had been sexually assaulted.

The results from the post-mortem examination were released on Friday.

The body of the nine-year female student, who was of Bog district in Westmoreland, was found in bushes in her community.

A police source close to the investigation has indicated that the 13-year-old male student from the same school that Kadijah attended, and the same community where she lived, who was taken into custody in connection with the gruesome discovery, is expected to be charged soon.

Reports are that about 8:00 p.m., the body was discovered in remote bushes by members of a search party after the child’s parents did not see the young girl return from school that day.

  1. It's so sad, children killing children. I feel sad for both sides of the family. I wonder what this boy maybe going through, what kind of family life he is living. It's sad all around. On the other hand he still have his life, and the little girl have lost her life. I pray for all partiies involve ......

  2. I am so saddened by this. I dont care about his age. He know exactly what he was doing. You are 13 and u know how to rape a 9 year old girl and strangle her. They better give the family justice. Do not feel sorry for him and say he young. The young generation is disgusting these days

    • Children are too sexual expose these days. Before children had to find a dirty magazine or video tape to see sex act; now it right on their cell phone. And since a highuge percentage of children have cell; there's a chance that a high amount of them have seen sex act and look at it. There the parents thinking she was safe walking home with a group, and it turn out the devil was at work through a child in the group. PIP baby girl.

  3. We live in a sick work that has moved away from our moral values due to the quest for sexual, monetary and worldly satisfaction. In addition our children are confused by those so called stars like vibes cartel etc who are pushing their way of life on the vulnerable who are sometimes themselves searching for answers and cannot find them.
