SIDS: Ontario: Rayden Bush

Lou Whitmire
MANSFIELD — A 5-month-old baby boy died today at his  home from what is thought to be Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
Richland County Coroner Dr. Stewart Ryckman said there was no obvious trauma seen on the body of Rayden Michael Bush, and called it a SIDS-type death. An autopsy will be done Thursday in Summit County.

SIDS is a syndrome marked by the sudden death of an infant that is unexpected by history and remains unexplained after a thorough forensic autopsy and a detailed death scene investigation.

“There’s no evidence of anything foul,” he said from the duplex, which the parents of the child were just moving into today.

The baby, born Sept. 9, is the son of Jason Bush, 19, and Jessica Wingrove, 21.

Rayden was apparently asleep on a mattress on the floor upstairs with his sister Addisyn Bush, 2, and their father when the father noticed the baby was not breathing and called 9-1-1, Ryckman said.

Their landlord, Wally Toward, was at the house because the gas company was turning on the gas today for the family, he said.

Employees of Wal-Mart Superstore in Ontario, where the baby’s mother worked, were on the scene Wednesday afternoon. They brought her home from work.

Mansfield police Juv. Det. Jeff Shook is handling the case.
