Noting that they were deeply saddened by the news of the young man’s death, Jean-Pierre said, “This is very devastating news.” He conveyed his condolences to the family of the young man. Jean-Pierre stated that a forensic investigation was launched on the issue on 10 May and said that he did not want to comment on the issue before the end of the investigation.

In the statement made by the US Health and Human Services Administration (HHS), it was reported that the family of the young man who died was in contact with his family.

It was reported that the child health department of the Refugee Resettlement Office (ORR) within the HHS examined the clinical details of the case. Due to confidentiality and security, detailed information on the subject was not shared.
