Baby death leads to homicide investigation

Posted:

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Police launch a homicide investigation, after a Lubbock infant dies from suspicious injuries.

NewsChannel 11 first told you about this case last week, when EMS rushed the child to the emergency room at University Medical Center. Medical staff alerted police shortly after. Doctors determined the infant's injuries were not consistant with an accident.

On Thursday, doctors notified police that the child had died. Preliminary autopsy results indicated homicide. "It's still quite preliminary, and they're not ready to discuss suspects or anything of that nature. Things that are of interest, obviously, are people that had access to the baby with in the last few day of the baby's life," says Captain Greg Stevens with the Lubbock Police Department.

Stevens says that right now, investigators have not zeroed in on a specific time or suspect in their investigation. He says authorities could be prepared to present a case to the D.A. and name a suspect in the next few days.
