Guam - It's too soon to say what caused the death of a three-month-old baby boy who was pronounced dead at the Guam Memorial Hospital last week.

This from the island's medical examiner Dr. Aurelio Espinola who says he's waiting on more tests, specifically microscopic slides and toxicology results, to complete the autopsy.

Espinola notes that although there was no trauma to the body, the infant was very thin. Further testing is necessary to determine whether this is a result of infection or child abuse. As we previously reported, the Guam Police Department is waiting on Espinola's findings to determine whether an investigation into the baby's death is necessary.
