A toddler who died in Starship Hospital after suffering severe non-accidental head injuries can now be identified.
Malcolm Robert Bell was just 16 months old.
The Herald revealed he was one of six children - and his five older siblings have all been removed from his mother's care by Oranga Tamariki.
His funeral was held yesterday.
He died six days later.
About 20 police are now working on a homicide investigation.
To date, charges have not been laid - however it is understood police are focusing on a small number of people connected to the toddler.
Oranga Tamariki have repeatedly refused to comment on the case, citing privacy and the police investigation.
Police were alerted to Malcolm's injuries by hospital staff who believed he had been deliberately harmed.
