The Iredell County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of an infant.
The Sheriff’s Office responded to a call yesterday (April 25) regarding a five-month-old child in respiratory distress at an address on Old Mountain Road, north of Troutman. When Deputies arrived, the Troutman Fire Department and Iredell County E.M.S. were already on the scene.
The child was pronounced deceased by emergency personnel. The area was secured as the Sheriff’s Office initiated its investigation. Persons of interest were located and interviews were conducted. A search warrant for the residence was conducted and items were seized.
An autopsy is scheduled later this week. This investigation is on-going.
