The story of the 3 year old kid found dead in outer Melbourne is a tragedy. But there’s something not right in the coverage/ story:
The Herald Sun
When Harpreet Kaur Channa stepped out of the shower and realised her little boy, Gurshan Singh, was no longer in the house, she panicked. But when she discovered that the front door was ajar, her heart raced…
It was around 12.30pm when they lost sight of him.
disappeared from a house in the northern Melbourne suburb of Lalor about 1.10pm. His body was found about 20km away near Melbourne Airport after 7pm.
The boy was inside a house with his mother late yesterday morning at around midday she noticed he was missing, and after searching for him with family for about three quarters of an hour police were called.
His mother, Harpreet Kaur Channa, called police after he had been missing for 45 minutes, prompting a massive search.
Notice the time line problems.
It could just be confusion in the media.
But that’s not all
She told police she thought her son had walked out the front door while she was showering.

Why would you wait 45 minutes to call police if your 3 year old has gone missing? If you knew the 3 year old could get out of the house, why wouldn’t you key lock the door?
But here’s the oddest thing of all
The Age (different article)
Marisa Talarica, 37, whose parents have lived a few doors along the street for 40 years, said the street was busy with cars and people attending a funeral at St Luke’s Catholic Church across the road at lunchtime yesterday.
“At the time he went missing there was a funeral on at the church,” she said.
“The street was full of cars. I don’t know how it’s possible for a kid to go missing when you have so many people around.”
As of this morning, the police are saying no witnesses have come forward, although this will change…because it’s beyond the realms of possibility that a large group of people in the street wouldn’t have noticed a lone 3 year old child walking past. That’s presuming that is what has occurred.
