CHATHAM COUNTY, Ga. (WTOC) - The death of a 6-month-old baby is being called suspicious, according to the Chatham County Coroner’s Office.

Chatham County Coroner David Campbell said the suspicious death of Liam Rye is being investigated. Rye died on Sept. 5 at Memorial Health in Savannah.

According to the coroner’s office, the exact cause of Rye’s death is currently unclear.

WTOC has been checking in with police throughout the day and working to get more information about what happened.

Investigators have not told us much.

A WTOC reporter went to an apartment on Garrard Avenue that our WTOC Investigates team believes was Rye’s home.

A woman answered the door and said they won’t be making any statements.

The Chatham County Police Department has now said it is investigating the death as a homicide.
