The Nacogdoches Police Department is investigating the death of a 4-month-old Nacogdoches infant after an autopsy revealed trauma, Public Information Officer Greg Sowell said.
The department was notified at about 5:15 a.m. Tuesday by the Dallas County Medical Examiner's Office, which performed the autopsy.
"The child was originally taken to a hospital here in Nacogdoches, then died in Dallas and was released to the Dallas County Medical Examiner's Office," Sowell said. "As part of their protocol, they observed some kind of trauma and they called the Nacogdoches Police Department, which is where the child was first taken to the hospital."
Police responded to the 400 block of Drewery Drive early Tuesday to investigate the scene.
"We have begun an investigation, and at this point, it is just that, a death investigation and nothing else," Sowell said. "Right now we don't have any further information. We have no autopsy report or anything at this point."
