Kyle Police investigating suspicious death of a child

Kyle Police is investigating what officials believe is the “suspicious” death of a two-year-old boy.  

Jeff Barnett, Kyle Police Chief, said authorities were dispatched to a home in the 300 block of Marquitos Drive in Kyle July 4 for a medical emergency of a child, who was reportedly not breathing.

When emergency officials arrived, they found the two-year-old was deceased, Barnett said.

Beth Smith, Hays County Pct. 2 Justice of the Peace, pronounced the child dead at 7:12 p.m. July 4; Smith also ordered an autopsy. Smith said she believed the death was suspicious because the child had no medical issues, along with other factors that are pending the outcome of autopsy results and the investigation.

Barnett said Kyle Police is continuing to interview family members at this time.
