Twins abuse case: Infant's death caused by cranial trauma

Initial post mortem findings concludes four-month old boy death was result of multiple cranial fractures

The Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court released Wednesday the initial findings of the autopsy performed on the four-month old baby boy who the police believed was shaken to death by his parents. The autopsy concluded his death was the result of cranial fractures.


The boy and his twin sister were hospitalized in critical condition on Thursday, at the Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer. Doctors have been able to stabilize the girl. Both parents were arrested by the police for alleged child abuse.

A police investigator testifying during the father's arraignment hearing Wednesday said that initial post mortem findings concluded that the infant died of multiple cranial fractures.


The autopsy ruled out other claims by the parents, suggesting the death might have been caused by the side effect caused by a vaccination, careless baby-yoga exercises or a genetic disease.


The officer said that while the autopsy result furthered the investigation, there was still no definitive conclusion suggesting the father's actions cause the infant's death.


The twin's mother was remanded to house arrest on Tuesday. Her daughter was released from the hospital into the care of another family member, who was appointed the infant's guardian.
