Father Lee Borrett and His Five-Year-Old Son Timmy Found Dead
Neighbor Carole Potter, 70, who watched the incident unfold, said: ‘The mum Veronica went in and I heard a scream and then she came out and just collapsed in a heap on the floor.
‘Her boyfriend of hers was trying to comfort her. I did not know what had happened. I just hoped against hope that the little boy was safe.’
Minutes earlier, Ms Potter had let Veronica into her home de ella to look over the garden fence for clues as to what had happened.
She said: ‘I knew that Timmy was with Lee for the day. About 5.30pm I heard the little boy screaming but it was like hysterical laughter rather than anything to worry about.
‘The next thing I heard was Veronica bashing on the door and shouting at about 8.30pm.’
Ms Potter said the couple had split up two years ago.
Timmy stayed with his father de él while his mother de él, whose family came from Slovakia, went to live with a new boyfriend in the village of Earl Shilton.
She said: ‘I got on very well with Veronica. It was like having another daughter. She is so nice. I spoke to her first when she came home from hospital with the baby.
‘When they split up he kept the little boy but she would get to see him regularly.
‘She always brought him back on time. Then recently she told me that she had got full custody.’
Before becoming a full-time parent to his son de él, Borrett had worked on an industrial estate near Rugby, Ms Potter said.
‘Since he got the boy he’s not worked,’ said Carole. ‘The little boy was lovely.
‘I would see him come home from school and he’d want to talk about his day about him but the dad always pushed him inside.
‘I just can’t believe what has happened. You never expect anything like this on your doorstep.
‘To be honest, it has broken my heart. I will never forget it for the rest of my life.’
Last night, forensics officers were seen going in and out of the terraced home and checking the black wheelie bin for any clues.
Another neighbor, who asked not to be named, said: ‘When we saw all the police arriving last night we knew something serious must have happened.
‘We did not know the family, just that there were two guys living there and occasionally a little boy.’
Neighbor Alan Potter, 75, said: ‘Timmy was a lovely little boy and my wife and I both liked his mum Veronika.
‘I heard him running around yesterday afternoon and I heard him give what sounded like an excited scream about 5.30pm. I thought his mother of him must have arrived because he loved his Mum of him so much.’
