A 39-year-old British man, who is accused of killing his six-month old son, was found hanged last night in his mother’s home.
Reports say Paul McBride’s ex-girlfriend called police after the taxi driver failed to return their son as agreed.
Police searching McBride’s home for the child found him in a “very poorly” condition. The boy was rushed to a local hospital where he later died.
McBride’s sister, Michelle, is said to have found her brother’s body hanging in their mother’s Preston, Lancs home.
Reports say McBride’s mother was on vacation in France when the discovery was made.
It is believed that McBride, who had been arguing with his ex, killed their son out of revenge.
