Police are reviewing the death of a Gore toddler who drowned in the town’s wastewater treatment ponds last January.
Lachlan Jones, who was three-years-old, could not be revived after being found unresponsive in the sewage oxidation pond in south Gore.
Police ruled it as a death by drowning, but the father of the boy told Newsroom there may have been foul play.
Detective Inspector Shona Low said any findings from the review would be considered and addressed.
But she would not confirm whether the case would be reinvestigated, saying the police were not in a position to comment further due to the ongoing review.
The initial review is expected to be completed next month.
The Gore District Council has been approached for comment and has not responded.
