Police: Death of 2-month-old boy considered suspicious

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Columbus police say the death of a 2-month-old boy is being treated as suspicious by homicide detectives.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/2ae7jzu ) Javonne Mundell was pronounced dead just after 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, three days after he was hospitalized.

Investigators say paramedics were called just before 8 a.m. Sunday for a report of an infant who wasn’t breathing and the boy was taken to a hospital with critical injuries.

Sgt. Dave Sicilian says the boy was alone with his father at the time of the incident.

Sicilian says detectives will decide how to proceed with the investigation after an autopsy is conducted Thursday. He says the infant had head and brain injuries and an autopsy could reveal others wounds.
