ECSO investigating death of 5 month old girl

Posted: Updated:

The Effingham County Sheriff's Office is investigating the death of a five-month-old baby girl. Investigators said they responded to a call on Saturday afternoon about a child not breathing at a home on Appaloosa Way.

"Anytime you have a five month old that obviously was found dead, obviously we are going to treat it as suspicious, like any other child death, until we can rule out any kind of foul play," said Effingham County Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer David Ehsanipoor. "An autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow with the GBI Crime Lab of Savannah, and we are hoping after tomorrow, and throughout the next couple of days, we will be able to get more answers as to what exactly happened with this child."

The case is under investigation by the Effingham County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Division.
