Police probe baby’s death

BELLEMEAD – The death of a newborn infant is under investigation in Antis Township.

State police were on scene at an apartment at 150 Grace Road, Bellemead, most of the day Thursday after being notified at 9:30 a.m. of the infants death, according to spokesman Trooper Jeff Petucci.

Police offered scant details Thursday and would only say investigators were looking into the newborn infants death.

A neighbor, who asked his name not be used, said he heard a call for an ambulance on his scanner at around 8 a.m. The neighbor said EMS personnel were on scene quickly and took the infant, described as only days old, out of the apartment.

Police did not provide any more details about the child and an autopsy was expected to be performed.
