Cause of death for Brisbane boy may take days

THE results of post-mortem examination on a 10-year-old Brisbane boy who died at home may not be released for several days, Queensland Health says.

Family members discovered the boy's body in a bedroom at a Mackenzie home just before 5pm on Sunday and called an ambulance.

Paramedics believe he may have died several hours before they were called.

The autopsy is being conducted by Queensland Health's Forensic and Scientific Services, which will also do toxicology tests if required.

The boy lived with two siblings, aged nine and 11, and had been in the care of his aunt for the past eight years.

The aunt was taken to hospital on Sunday with a medical condition.
