In response to the most recent and shocking homicide of a little boy named, Lee Allan Bonneau, authorities are comforting various families, affected members of the diverse community, and even the child killer. Bonneau passed away last month on a Saskatchewan reserve, a short while after which his death was officially disclosed a murder, and his killer another boy who is himself a child. It was declared during a press conference held on Tuesday in Regina that the same government ministry and same child-welfare agency will be involved with the boys and their families after the death that were ironically responsible for taking care of him in the first place.
Police found that the six-year-old boy was beaten to death on the evening of Aug. 21, whose assaulted body was found in a wooded area not far from the community centre on the Kahkewistahaw First Nation, i.e. located about 150 kilometres east of Regina. Since Lee lived in a foster home off the reserve, it was directly the responsibility of the social services ministry to take care of him.
Meanwhile, the culprit is another boy under the age of 12 and thus is not eligible to be prosecuted for homicide or held criminal responsible. The federal Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA) allows government to charge only those young people who are at least 12, or under 18. RCMP Staff Sgt., Larry Brost, has asserted that there “no other person responsible” for Lee’s death other “than this child.”
