Murder arrest after girl found in Kingsley Pond dies – BBC

A woman has been arrested on suspicion of murder following the death of a toddler found in a village pond.
The two-year-old was reported missing from her home on Forge Road, Kingsley, near Bordon, Hampshire, at about 17:00 BST on Sunday.
She was found a short time later in Kingsley Pond and taken to hospital where she died on Monday, Hampshire Constabulary said.
The woman, in her 40s, remains in custody for questioning, officers said.
The force added that the girl's family were being supported by specialist officers.
A nearby car park had been filled with about a dozen police cars as officers gathered to search for the toddler when she was first went missing.
Cordons placed around the pond had been lifted on Monday morning and there was little evidence of the large-scale incident the evening before.
