INDIANAPOLIS – Police are investigating the death of a baby found Saturday afternoon in an SUV parked outside an Indianapolis business.
Police and paramedics responded to an AutoZone store about 4:45 p.m. The baby was unresponsive when medical personnel arrived and was pronounced dead at Riley Children’s Hospital.
The child was believed to be with the mother, but police would not say where the mother was when the call for help was placed or who made that call. Police have not announced the age or gender of the baby.
The mother is being questioned by detectives, and homicide investigators were called to the scene. Police also were seeking a warrant to search the black SUV parked near the business, a few spaces south of the entrance.
A coroner will do an autopsy to determine the cause of death, but results may not be available until Monday.
