killing of 17-month old British boy
(Redirected from Peter Connelly)

Peter Connelly (1 March 2006 – 3 August 2007) (also known as "Baby P", "Child A"[2] and "Baby Peter") was a 17-month-old British child. He died of child abuse on 3 August 2007 in London, England after suffering more than 50 injuries over an eight-month period. His mother, her partner and his brother were sent to prison for attacking him. The case resulted in several big investigations into how the social services department of Haringey Council carried out its job looking after children in danger.
