Bedford Police Department investigators are looking into the death of a 9-month-old infant on Sept. 4.

The department received a call on Sept. 2 at 7 p.m. to respond to Bedford Memorial Hospital in reference to the infant. The infant was transported to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital and died two days later.

According to Bedford Police Chief Jim Day the infant's body has been sent to the medical examiner's office in Roanoke for a determination of the cause and manner of death. The case remains under investigation.

Day said he doesn't expect to receive the autopsy results for another week. "At this point there's nothing we're doing until the autopsy comes back. If it has information we need we'll go from there," he said.
