Russia concerned over adopted boy's cause of death

Russia's foreign minister said Saturday it was concerned by a Texas coroner's report declaring the death of an adopted boy from the nation as accidental.
The 3-year-old lived in Texas with his adoptive parents.
The announcement of the accidental death came after an autopsy was completed on the boy, Max Shatto.
The foreign ministry said it did not receive the information on cause of death from U.S. officials, but from the media.

    I'm concerned too, because I don't see how a 3 year old boy could inflict such an injury to himself, or how they can determine that it was "self inflicted" based on bruising! I think more investigation is in order!!
