WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Prosecutors in Poland said the father of a five-year-old boy whose body was found over the weekend is the sole suspect in the child’s slaying.
The father was killed after he threw himself under a train on July 10, the same day Dawid Zukowski’s mother reported her son missing. The parents were separated and the mother, a Russian citizen, said the father failed to deliver the boy to her.
Police carried out a massive search for the boy along a highway between Grodzisk Mazowiecki and Warsaw, where the father had driven before he died. The body was found last Saturday in bushes by a water reservoir near the highway. The spokesman for Warsaw prosecutors, Lukasz Lapczynski, said yesterday that an autopsy would be performed to determine how Dawid died.
