No one knows his first name or his last name. Investigators give him 5 or 6 years, at most, and imagine him to be from Nigeria. But the truth about his identity may well never be revealed. On September 21, 2001, exactly 20 years ago, the torso of this little boy was fished out of the Thames, in London, near Tower Bridge. His head and limbs were severed, and his death was likely the result of a severe trauma to the neck. The little boy was wearing orange shorts – which were found – with washing instructions written in German on the label.

As the Sud-Ouest relates, the boy was surely one of the many victims of human trafficking, if not the victim of a ritual murder. At the time, a woman was first arrested on suspicion of the murder of the child. Then two men. But all have been released and the drama remains unresolved over the years.

“We implore them to show courage and come forward if they know anything”

Investigators are well aware that people did not want to speak at the time of the tragedy. Perhaps out of fear. Or out of loyalty to the people involved. “However, over the past 20 years, allegiances and relationships may have changed and some people may now feel more comfortable talking to us. We implore them to be courageous and come forward if they know anything. thing, “Chief Detective Kate Kieran said. This is why the London police are launching a call for witnesses today. “No matter how old or small the information may seem, it could really make a difference.” Today, the British police still hope to find those responsible for the death of the boy, as well as the family of the latter.

Anyone with information on this should contact the police on 101, Tweet @MetCC or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
