Kenneth and Bronson were found after a social worker visited their home on 2nd January, following attempts to contact Kenneth since 27th December. Despite not receiving any response during the initial visit, further attempts were made, and the bodies were discovered days later when the social worker entered the residence with a key provided by the landlord.

Postmortem results revealed that Bronson died of dehydration and starvation, while Kenneth is believed to have suffered a heart attack no earlier than 29th December.

Sarah Piesse, Bronson’s mother, expressed her distress over not being able to hold her son when she went to identify him, stating that he had been left alone for too long.

Lincolnshire county council has pledged a thorough review to understand the circumstances surrounding the deaths. Heather Sandy, the executive director for Lincolnshire children’s services, expressed condolences to the family and friends, emphasizing the council’s commitment to supporting them during this difficult time.

The social worker involved has not been suspended but has voluntarily taken time off. Lincolnshire police have confirmed that the deaths are not being treated as suspicious, and the exact actions of the organizations involved will be scrutinized in the upcoming review.

The council awaits the results of the coroner’s investigations and is coordinating with partner agencies to gain a comprehensive understanding of the case.
