Cops: Baby's death is suspicious

The little boy was just 16 days shy of marking his first year in this world, but before he could, he was taken out of it under what police are calling suspicious circumstances.

Around 8:24 a.m. Sunday, Collingdale police were called to a home on Lincoln Avenue for a baby in respiratory distress, said Collingdale Police Chief Bob Adams.

The baby boy, whose first birthday would have been on July 31, was taken to Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 8:40 a.m., according to police.

Collingdale police called county detectives to the scene and inside of the house investigators found drug paraphernalia, Adams said.

The Delaware County Medical Examiner's Office is conducting an autopsy today. No one is currently in custody for the child's death but Adams did say it is being carried as suspicious.
