Authorities investigate death of 2-year-old
Law enforcement called to hospital
Authorities in Delta County are investigating the death of a 2-year-old boy.
The boy, identified by the Delta County Sheriff’s Department as the son of Ashley Dorsch, died Saturday at Delta County Memorial Hospital, the sheriff’s department said in a news release.
Investigators were called to the hospital around 6:45 p.m. Saturday.
A cause of death remains under investigation. The 7th Judicial District Attorney’s Office and the Delta County Coroner’s office also are investigating.
Sheriff Fred McKee declined to answer a host of questions, citing the early stages of the investigation.
“We’re trying to get some questions answered,” McKee said, when asked if the death was considered suspicious.
The infant’s mother lives about one mile west of Delta in an unincorporated area of the county, McKee said.
