LUDLOW, Vt. (WCAX) The Vermont State Police are investigating an 11-month-old baby's untimely death in Ludlow.

Authorities say the child died at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center Thursday morning. State police are now taking over the case and will be working with the New Hampshire medical examiner on the cause and manner of death.

Police are calling it an “unexplained” death. They say medical information available to them shows there was no expectation that the child had a previous medical condition. They are not saying whether the baby’s death is suspicious. They need more information that only an autopsy could provide. Those results are expected by Saturday.

Family members are being interviewed and no one is in custody.
