The death of a 7-month-old Oxford child is currently being investigated by the Wellington Police Dept.
Chief of police Tracy Heath told NewsCow Wednesday afternoon that a suspicious death investigation is ongoing. At this point, no arrests have been made.
The infant, a girl, was taken to Sumner Regional Medical Center in Wellington on the morning of April 1 for treatment of injuries. She was later transported to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita and died there on April 5, Heath said.
Wellington police were first called to the hospital to investigate the circumstances of the child’s injuries. After the child died, the case became a suspicious death investigation.
The baby was in the care of her mother, who lives in Oxford.
