Case of baby's mystery death re-opened
HOMICIDE detectives have re-opened an investigation into the mystery death of a baby boy at a remote NSW Aboriginal community.
It has been almost a decade since five-month-old Mundine Orcher was found by relatives with a faint pulse in his cot at Brewarrina in the state's north west.
He was rushed to hospital but could not be saved.
A post mortem revealed the infant had multiple fractures dating back to when he was newborn.
A coronial inquest into his death did not provide the answers police needed to press charges.
This week, detectives from Strike Force Zelman-2 headed to Brewarrina to re-interview witnesses.
Detective Sergeant Jason Darcy described the case as a terrible tragedy and said Mundine's family and the local community was "desperate for closure".
Anyone with information can phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
