WEST ALEXANDRIA — At press time, the Preble County Sheriff’s Office was investigating the death of a 21-month-old child.
Deputies initially responded along with West Alexandria EMS on Dec. 13, at approximately 1:31 a.m. to 5247 Lexington Road. The mother of the child had called 9-1-1 reporting that her son was unresponsive and not breathing.
The child was transported to Kettering Medical Center’s Preble ER in Eaton and later transported to Dayton Children’s Hospital by CareFlight. The child died on Monday evening, Dec. 14, at the hospital.
An autopsy was performed last week at the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office in Dayton. Detectives are continuing their investigation.
