Shenandoah police are investigating the death of an infant who was found unresponsive at a local daycare center. Shenandoah Police Chief Kris Grebert confirms the incident occurred in the 200 block of West Lowell on Wednesday.
The caller to 911 said the infant was unresponsive. The child was taken to Shenandoah Medical Center and later died. Chief Grebert says the Iowa Department of Human Services and the State Medical Examiner’s Office are involved in the investigation.
“We did make a call to DHS and to the state because this is a state-licensed daycare where this happened,” he says. “We are ongoing in our investigation on the cause. The coroner was notified and we’re working with them on the cause of the death.”
The infant’s name has not been released.
