Two-Month-Old Infant Found Dead At John F. Kennedy Terrace
CHRISTIANSTED – A two-month-old child was found dead early this morning at a housing community in Estate Golden Rock, according to the Virgin Islands Police Department.
Police said the 911 Emergency Call Center received a notification of a child being dead on arrival (DOA) at 6:34 a.m. Saturday at John F. Kennedy Terrace, the VIPD said.
Officers and detectives responded to the scene and discovered a two-month old infant who appeared to be lifeless. Emergency Medical Technicians responded to the scene, examined the infant and discovered no signs of life, according to police.
The preliminary report indicates that the mother of the infant discovered that the child was not breathing and phoned 911. No foul play had been discovered in the infant’s death, but no further information was learned because family members were too distraught to talk, police said.
The situation has been classified as a DOA pending an autopsy, as detectives continue their investigation into the infant’s death, according to the VIPD.
