The Jasper Police Department is investigating the death of a 3-month-old baby boy that occurred Friday afternoon.
Jasper Police Chief Robert McDonald said the death is under investigation because the nature of the baby's death is suspicious. An autopsy has been ordered.
According to McDonald, the person taking care of the child called 911 from a Jasper residence Friday afternoon. The caller was performing CPR at the time.
After the baby was taken to the emergency room of a Jasper hospital, the child was airlifted to Children's Hospital in Houston at 2:30 p.m. The baby died at the Houston hospital Saturday.
