Baby’s “Unclassified” Death Investigated

HOMESTEAD (CBS4) – Miami-Dade Police are investigating the death of a 4-month-old baby Saturday.

Police spokesman Det. Alvaro Zabaleta said the child’s homestead apartment was in “deplorable” living conditions, but did not elaborate further.

According to police the child’s parents brought the boy to Homestead Hospital Saturday morning saying he was unresponsive.

The Department of Children & Families is investigating the death and has placed an older sibling with relatives, according to DCF spokeswoman Lissette Valdes-Valle, who also said the family has a history with the organization.

Investigators are waiting for the medical examiner’s autopsy to determine what killed the child.

No one had been charged with a crime as of Saturday night.
