3-week-old found unresponsive in Cherokee County home

Posted: Updated:

Detectives out of Cherokee County are investigating after a 3-week-old was found unresponsive at a home off Alex Street.

Deputies on scene attempted CPR before the child was taken to Northside Cherokee Hospital.

She was later pronounced dead.

An autopsy was performed Tuesday, but toxicology reports are not expected for some time.

Deputies said the parents were at the home with a relative who was believed to be caring for the child at the time of her death.

Detectives said there is a possibility the death is a result of co-sleeping and the child was potentially smothered by accident.

No charges were filed.
