What happened to Bronson Battersby?

The Sun reported that Bronson Battersby was tragically found curled up dead next to his dad Kenneth. They were found two weeks after they were last seen, his devastated family have reportedly said.

A social worker came to the rented property on January 2 for a routine visit but there was no answer at the door, so she contacted the police and knocked on other doors.

She returned two days later but there was still no response and she contacted police again.

It took another five days before she finally arranged to get a key from the landlord to check on the pair herself.

When she got inside the property in Skegness, Lincolnshire, on January 9, both Kenneth and Bronson, who were considered vulnerable and being visited weekly, were dead.

Initial post-mortem results show that Bronson died from dehydration and starvation, while Kenneth died of a heart attack.

It was also reported that the family’s pet dog, Skylar, survived at the home in Skegness.
