A MOTHER suspected of murdering her baby boy with her boyfriend is living at unknown location whilst on police bail.

The 21-month-old tot died from multiple injuries in Queen Mary's Hospital, Sidcup, less than an hour after he was taken from his home in Halcot Avenue, Bexleyheath, on December 29.

The 29-year-old woman was arrested that day on suspicion of assault along with her 24-year-old boyfriend.

The couple were rearrested on New Year's Eve on suspicion of murder after a Post Mortem at Great Ormond Street Hospital concluded that the boy died of multiple injuries.

Witnesses said the boyfriend stood weeping in the doorway of the two-storey council home when the baby was taken away by paramedics.

The home now lies empty - the front door fitted with a metal security cover.

Well wishers left teddy bear tributes and flowers and candles on the doorstep. One note addressed 'To Bobby' was written by a child.

It read: "I will miss you so much and you always gave me a big cuddle when I came round to see you.

"I am missing you and Kyle."

Another message read: "The angels now get to share the laughter and joy you always showed.

"Sleep safely in their arms and may they protect you in the way you desire."

The two suspects have been bailed and are due to return to a police station in early February.

Bexley council said the infant was not on the child protection register because no pervious concerns had been raised about his welfare.

A spokesman said: "Bexley council's Children's Services were not involved with the mother, her current partner and her young son before this week's tragic events.

"We are working closely with our partners and will be following the guidance published by the government on serious case reviews."
