The death of a 3-month-old baby is being investigated as suspicious, according to Rocky Mount Police Chief David Cundiff.
The mother of the baby called for a rescue squad to transport the child to the hospital about two weeks ago, Cundiff said.
The baby died Sunday at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital, he added.
"It appears that the child may have died from some type of violent trauma, but we cannot be sure until an autopsy on the child is completed," said Cundiff.
The police chief said he hopes to have the results of the autopsy today (Friday, May 24).
