EPD Investigating Infant Death


Authorities are investigating the death of an infant who was found unconscious at an Evansville apartment complex. 

Evansville Police were called to the 2500 block of Sunburst Blvd. at about 9:15 Thursday night for a one-week-old that wasn’t breathing.

In a release, the EPD says when officers arrived an ambulance crew was attempting to revive the baby.

The girl’s mother told authorities she had fed her around 9:00 p.m. and then placed her in a swing. About 15 minutes later, she went to check on the child and discovered she wasn’t breathing.

The EPD says the ambulance crew took the baby to a hospital where she was pronounced deceased.

Evansville Police, Detectives, and Department of Child Services are investigating the child’s death.

The baby’s identity has not been released.
