Police are investigating the death of a 3-month-old child at an apartment where an infant died from sudden infant death syndrome last year.
As several Trotwood police cruisers remained on scene at 10:30 p.m., the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office removed the body of a 3-month-old male infant from the apartment in the 3300 block of Shiloh Springs Road.
Emergency crews responded shortly before 9 p.m. to the address on the report of a baby found not breathing.
Investigators said the father found the baby not breathing and called 911. The mother was at work at the time.
There were no signs of trauma, but the death is considered suspicious because an infant died of sudden infant death syndrome at the same home last year, according to Trotwood Sgt. Fred Beck.
“Due to two SID deaths in one family in a short amount of time, you owe it to that child to find out what happened. So this investigation is for the little one and for the family so they can have closure,” Beck said.
