Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office investigates baby's death

WICHITA — The Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office is investigating the death of a 2-week-old baby girl today, but said it does not appear suspicious.

The baby died this morning at 4200 block of South Cumberland.

An autopsy will be held Sunday or Monday to determine the cause of death, said Capt. Annette Haga.

"Obviously it's unusual when a baby dies," she said. "Without knowing what the cause of death is, we're treating it with the highest priority of any death.

"There's nothing to indicate that there's a problem."

County emergency personnel arrived at the scene shortly after 11 a.m. but were unable to revive the baby.
