Police are investigating the death of an 11-year-old boy in West Arnhem Land with detectives from the Darwin Crime Division being sent to lead the investigation, police said.

NT Police media manager Rob Cross said the detectives have travelled to the remote community of Gunbalanya in West Arnhem, around 300kms from Darwin, to lead the investigation.

It is understood that the boy died on Wednesday, but the circumstances around the death have not been revealed and details remained scarce.

Reports indicate the child’s body has been sent to Darwin. It’s unclear if it’s for a forensic examination or other tests.

Mr Cross released very limited information surrounding the cause of the boy’s death.

He also did not disclose if the boy’s death is being treated as suspicious or related to illness.

Mr Cross said a report will be prepared for the Coroner.
