SIDS: Missouri: Quintine Schmidt

 December 10, 2010
The Dexter infant found dead inside his home in October died of sudden infant death syndrome. Quintine Jeffrey Alexander Schmidt, the 6-month-old son of Erik and Candice Schmidt, died Oct. 12 at his residence.
Dexter Police officers and Stoddard County Ambulance Service personnel responded to the Schmidt residence in the north sector of Dexter after a 911 call was received regarding a baby in cardiac arrest and not breathing. Upon their arrival, the infant was found unresponsive and subsequently was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Stoddard County Major Case Squad was activated to investigate the infant's death and an autopsy was performed Oct. 14 at Mineral Area Regional Medical Center in Farmington, Mo., by Dr. Russell Deidiker.
Dexter authorities recently received Deidiker's final autopsy report, which listed Quintine's cause of death as sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and his manner of death as natural, said Dexter Police Detective Trevor Pulley.
