ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Saturday evening the Angelina County Sheriff Office received a 911 call about an infant that was not breathing. When authorities arrived at a home located on County Road 302 they found that a 2-month-old girl had died from unknown causes. According to Sheriff Greg Sanches with the ACSO, the woman reported feeding the infant before laying her down for a nap.

“The [woman] then left the infant in the care of family friends while she went to pick up a friend in Nacogdoches,” Sanches said. “At some point one of the friends went to check up on the baby and noticed it wouldn't’t respond to them and it wasn't’t breathing. They then called[woman] who told them to call 911,” Sanches said.

Sanches further explained that family and friends were questioned at the scene about the incident.

“It appears to be a natural death. However, upon our investigation there were some questions that were not answered so an autopsy was requested to rule out foul play,” Sanches said.

Authorities should have more answers when the autopsy results come in on Tuesday.

According to CPS spokeswoman Shari Pulliam, the baby was placed in Parental Child Safety Plan, which is a placement made by the parent during an open CPS case.
