NH police investigate baby's death, twin's injuries

Posted: Updated:
LYMAN, N.H. - "Essentially trying to figure out what happened to these two children," said Jeff Strelzin, the senior assistant attorney general in New Hampshire.

Investigators combed over a home in Lyman, New Hampshire, just over the Vermont border not far from St. Johnsbury and Littleton. The State Police Major Crime Unit and New Hampshire attorney general's office are investigating Wednesday's death of a baby boy there.

"That infant male was taken from the scene, treated at a local hospital, but died a short time later," Strelzin said.

Paramedics also found the baby boy's twin sister seriously hurt inside.

"While the police and EMS were there, they discovered there was a 4-month-old female there as well, who was the sister of the infant male. She was later found to have very serious injuries, and she's currently at a hospital as we speak," Strelzin said.

He would not say what those injuries are or what happened to the babies, and he didn't identify any suspects.

Investigators gathered evidence at the home on Quebec Road, examining an upstairs window.

It's not clear where the children’s parents are now. Police say the parents made the 911 call. When asked by WCAX News if anyone was under arrest, the assistant attorney general said, "not yet."

"The state police have been searching the residence. They've also been speaking to people who have information about what might have occurred there, people who know the people who are in the home," Strelzin said.

An autopsy on the baby boy is done. We are still waiting for the results to be released.
