Police have wrapped up their search of a Brisbane home for the remains of a toddler believed to have died more than 50 years ago.
Forensic officers had used ground-penetrating radar to comb the space under the old housing commission home in Inala, south of the city, where Peter John Enright once lived.
The fourth-born in a family of 11 children is believed to have died in 1968 or 1969, when he was three or four years old. His mother, 76-year-old Maureen Enright, appeared in Richlands Magistrates Court last week, charged with murdering the autistic toddler.
“The search of a residence on Polaris Street, Inala, in relation to the historical homicide investigation of Peter John Enright has concluded,” police said in an update on Friday.
“Forensic officers examined areas of interest on the property over eight days. No skeletal remains were located.
“As the matter is before court no further information is available at this time. Police continue to encourage anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers.”
