Court documents say infant was dead two hours before 911 call

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Court documents have provided more details about conditions inside the home where a 5-month-old boy died Thursday afternoon.

Authorities are considering the death suspicious due to "inconsistent information" reported by the family.

The report says:

"Law enforcement advised that the family reported that the father [defendant] had reportedly checked on [infant] approximately 20 minutes prior and when he checked on [infant] again he was not breathing. Law Enforcement advised that upon arriving at the scene it was apparent that the child had been deceased at least 2 hours prior to the 911 emergency phone call as rigamortis was already setting in. In addition, Law Enforcement advised that a large knot appeared to be on [infant's] head. Law Enforcement reported that [defendant] reportedly found the child facing down."

Investigators report that upon entering the home there were marijuana pipes laid out on a table and the home was "filthy with trash and clothing everywhere."

Investigators said the home "smelled strongly of cat urine and feces." Marijuana was also found.

Three other children were inside the home at the time of the death, ranging in age from 2 to 6. All are currently in protective custody.

Documents also refer to a past with Child Protective Services, with reports of drug use, neglect and the threat of abusive behavior.

No charges have been filed as of Friday evening.
