Chris and Cru Kahui were twins, aged just 3 months old when they died in hospital, both suffering from traumatic brain injury.

Their death was the result of a severe impact, either from direct blows or being hit, thrown or slammed against a hard surface. Violent shaking was another possible cause, and couldn’t be ruled out.

What was clear was that the twins injuries weren’t accidental. Their death was the result of somebody using deliberate force against them. It was determined the injuries were most likely inflicted at the same time, by the same person.

The twins had been murdered. So who was responsible?
