No New News in Death of 8 Year Old Boy

Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson says that there is no new news into the cause of death for an eight-year-old Walker County boy that was found dead near his home in Chickamauga last week.

Funeral services were held this week for Bentley Robbins who was a student at Chattanooga Valley Elementary School.  Investigators with the Walker County Sheriff’s Department know that the boy was sent home from school early the day of his death after feeling sick.  His body was recovered near the family home that evening by his mother’s boyfriend.

Sheriff Wilson says that it could be four to six weeks before the GBI Crime Lab releases a cause of death.  The sheriff says that they are not ruling out anything until they get definite results from the medical examiner.
