Revealed: Baby killed by abusive father suffered suspicious broken leg just months earlier

AN inquest has heard that a four-month-old baby who died at the hands of her abusive father, suffered a suspicious broken leg just months earlier.

Baby Ebony died from horrific abuse on November 8, 2011.

Her father was later jailed for nine years for criminal neglect.


At an inquest today, a radiologist revealed that he suspected a fracture in her thigh was no accident when the child was admitted to Adelaide’s Queen Elizabeth hospital in August 2011.

The concern was reportedly raised with child protection authorities, however they accepted the parents explanation that Ebony’s father had accidentally dropped the baby.
