In January, police found an eight-year-old girl dead in a house in the Australian state of Queensland. A total of twelve members of a religious group and the child’s parents are said to be linked to the death. According to the police, they had denied the girl access to medical care, reports “Nine News”.
The eight-year-old is said to have suffered from an illness. The members of the religious community knew about the disease but decided not to help the girl for six days.
The religious group consists of three families aged between 19 and 64, according to the police. The twelve people have now been arrested and are expected to be charged with the girl’s murder. Police arrested the child’s parents earlier.
The police said the six-month investigation into the arrest of the twelve alleged perpetrators was very complex. “In my almost 40 years as a police officer, I have never experienced anything like this. I am not aware of a similar case in Queensland let alone Australia,” said one of the investigators.
