Kyle police are investigating the death of a 2-year-old boy on the Fourth of July, Police Chief Jeff Barnett said Wednesday.
Officers responded at around 6 p.m. to a home in the 300 block of Marquitos Drive after the boy’s parents called to report a medical issue, Barnett said.
When police arrived, the toddler was unresponsive and died inside the residence, officials said.
Barnett said police are investigating the incident as a suspicious death but are awaiting autopsy results that will determine the cause and manner of the boy’s death.
On Wednesday, Hays County Pct. 2 Justice of the Peace Beth Smith said a preliminary autopsy indicated the child had “a number of worrisome findings,” but she would not elaborate further, pending final autopsy results.
Barnett said no charges have been filed.
Police do not release the names of juvenile victims.
The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services said it is investigating with law enforcement and that the family had previous involvement with CPS.
A second child was in the residence at the time and was voluntarily taken to Dell Children’s Medical Center in Austin for an examination, Barnett said.
CPS spokesman Patrick Crimmins said the 9-month-old girl has been placed in foster care.
