Guam - A tragedy occurred over the weekend involving the death of a newborn. Police Spokesperson Officer Paul Tapao says a Yigo family had just returned home from a gathering around noon time Sunday, about two hours later they found the 3-month old in the car in his car seat.

"On Saturday the 3rd, around 3 clock in the afternoon, officers from the Dededo Precinct Command received a call of an injured person off the residence in in Yigo at which time when they arrived they determined it was a 3 month old baby boy who was found in the rear middle chair of the family vehicle the baby prior to the officers arrival, the 3 month old male was transported by GFD medics to GMH. Now the baby was unconscious, unresponsive but was breathing at the time, that's why we classified it as an injured person complaint," he said.

The case according to Police Spokesperson Paul Tapao is now classified as a death investigation. We should add however medical examiner Dr. Aurelio Espinola told KUAM that based on his autopsy he believes the child's death was a homicide. Tapao responded that detectives are still classifying it as a death investigation until they officially determine whether foul play was involved, whether the incident was accidental or whether the child died of natural causes.
