The death of a 10-year-old boy in a house in Scotland is being treated as murder.

Kane Morris died at the scene in Coupar Angus in Perth and Kinross in the early hours of Sunday morning.

An eight-year-old girl remains in hospital in a critical but stable condition.

Police Scotland now say they are treating his death as murder, and have appealed for two potential witnesses to come forward.

In a statement, police said: “As a result of the ongoing inquiry, it is believed that two men have passed the property on Union Street around the time of the incident during the early hours of Sunday morning.”

A 37-year-old man remains in police custody after being arrested in connection with the incident.

Kane’s family released a statement earlier this week, which said: “Kane was a popular young boy within the community, he was full of energy and loved dearly by all.”

Police say two men may have heard a disturbance in the house at around 2.05am on Sunday morning and urged them to get in touch.

Officers arrived at the address after a call from a member of the public at 2.30am.

Anyone with information should contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting incident 611 of November 11. Anyone wanting to remain anonymous should contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
