On December 5, 2016, around 6 p.m., Kern County Sheriff's Office deputies went to an infant not breathing on Stagecoach Lane, just south of Gibbs Avenue in Rosamond.
Deputies performed CPR until medical aid arrived. The infant was then transported to Antelope Valley Hospital in Lancaster, where she was pronounced deceased.
KCSO detectives responded and assumed the investigation, as is protocol for child deaths. Detectives are currently speaking with the parents of the child and investigating the circumstances surrounding the death.
An autopsy will be scheduled later this week to determine the cause and manner of death. The infant's name will be released by the coroner's office at a later time.
Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Kern County Sheriff's Office at (661) 861-3110, or Secret Witness at (661) 322-4040.
