An Australian father has been accused of murder for reportedly neglecting to seek medical assistance after a snake bit the youngster. Tristian Frahm, 11, died on November 20 at a Murgon farm in Queensland’s South Burnett district, hours after telling his 31-year-old father, Kerrod Frahm, that a snake had bitten him.
Cops accused the 31-year-old of manslaughter on Tuesday night, blaming him of failing to take his son’s allegation seriously. Cops will charge a 31-year-old Murgon man with failing to seek medical assistance after the youngster claimed being bitten by a snake, Queensland Police said in a statement.
Tristian allegedly stepped out of bed in the middle of the night to go ill, and his dead body was discovered outdoors the next morning. The next day, he was discovered lifeless. Police blame Kerrod for dismissing the youngster’s words. He was accused on Tuesday, November 8, following a 12-month-long police “extensive” probe into the boy’s death known as Operation Uniform Weft.
Following his passing, Tristian’s family and loved ones paid homage and referred to him as a “little hero.” The universe has acquired a new Angel. She is at a loss for words, and the pain is unbearable. She is still in shock and couldn’t be more fortunate to have a nephew like him, Tristian was mentioned on Facebook by his aunt. She thanked him for giving her the title of aunty. She adores him more than she ever imagined. Every minute, she misses him more and more. She’ll always have a gap in her heart for him, she reached a conclusion.

A national evaluation of documented snake envenoming deaths has not been conducted in over 20 years. The National Coronial Information System tracked deaths from January 2000 through December 2016. Cases classified as snake-related were retrieved using data from coronial findings, autopsies, and police records. Death from snake bites is uncommon in Australia and has been stable for more than 20 years. A nationally coordinated effort to further assess the national picture of envenoming in Australia can influence education and resource requirements within state and local contexts.
