Police investigating child's "unknown death"

Posted: Updated:

Phoenix Police are investigating the death of a 1-year-old boy at a home in north Phoenix.

Someone who lives in the area of Cactus and 28th Drive told FOX 10 a little boy was taken away by ambulance Thursday morning and that crime scene tape was put up around the home.

Phoenix Police Sgt. Steve Martos says detectives are investigating it as a "death unknown."

Police say the 1-year-old boy had been suffering from a bad fever the past 3 days. They say CPS had placed the boy with his 26-year-old aunt, who was also caring for 6 other kids.

They are awaiting an autopsy to determine cause of death and whether any charges will be filed.
