YUGAR, BRISBANE: A Queensland man and his wife have been charged for allegedly torturing and murdering their seven-month-old son in their home in Brisbane in Australia, the Queensland police reported.

The baby boy’s father, Reinhardt Bosch, 33, and his wife, 22, were arrested by the officials on Thursday, November 03 after they responded to an emergency call and rushed to the couple’s home at Mount Samson Road in Yugar, Brisbane at around 6.45 am. The officials have yet not revealed the identity of the wife. They both have been charged with one count of murder and torture.

The authorities said the dead body of the little boy was found in the house but they can’t reveal where it was found. Queensland Police Detective Inspector David Jackman said, "It certainly hits home. I have been a detective for 30-odd years, and it is one of the most confronting scenes I've seen. The child was found in the house, but where in the house, I'm not at liberty to say." He also revealed that from what he observed while on the scene, the child was not neglected in terms of nourishment. "The investigation has uncovered injuries to the child that is enough for us to charge murder,’ Inspector Jackson said, adding, "they're defenseless at seven months old and it's not pleasant, no."

After being arrested by the cops, the couple spent the whole day being interrogated by the investigators at Ferny Grove police station. The official reports are claiming that the baby allegedly died as early as Wednesday morning, November 2. The pair will appear before Brisbane Magistrates Court on Friday. The Queensland police department has established Operation Uniform Salwood to investigate the brutal death of the baby boy.

The investigators are also claiming that the religious beliefs of the couple are also going to play a crucial role in figuring out what happened. Detectives are now digging into the accused couple's family histories and have begun questioning their loved ones as a part of the investigation. On Bosch's Twitter, which has since been removed, his bio quoted the verse of Romans 8.28: "And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to his purposes." That there may be religious motivations behind their treatment of their child is very much a line of inquiry in the current investigation. More details may emerge after the autopsy of the child's body. Anyone with relevant information about the case is urged to contact the police immediately.
