Westmoreland baby's death under investigation

Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2013, 12:01 a.m.
 

The death of a 2-month-old boy Monday morning does not appear to be suspicious, but state police are awaiting further tests to finalize their investigation.

The Westmoreland County Coroner's Office said the boy died at 10:39 a.m. at Excela Health Frick Hospital in Mt. Pleasant, about an hour after emergency workers were called to a home on Trouttown Road in Hempfield.

An autopsy was conducted Monday afternoon, but a ruling on the cause and manner of death is awaiting further testing. Those tests likely will not be available for eight to 10 weeks, according to the coroner's office.

State police spokesman Trooper Steve Limani said troopers are investigating the death, but that inquiry is pending the autopsy results.
