Police investigating infant’s death in Seward County

LIBERAL, Kan. (AP) – Police in Seward County are investigating the death of an infant that authorities say is suspicious.

Liberal Police Department Capt. Pat McClurg says a 19-year-old man called 911 while in route to Southwest Medical Center with his infant son on Oct. 26. McClurg says the man told operators that his son wasn’t breathing. The child was pronounced dead at the hospital.

According to The High Plains Daily Leader, McClurg says a preliminary investigation and autopsy results indicate the death was suspicious.

McClurg says an affidavit will be submitted to the Seward County attorney seeking first-degree murder and child abuse charges.

The investigation is ongoing.
