An infant boy was found dead inside an Irmo home Sunday morning, and Richland County authorities say the death is suspicious.
Deputies responded to a home on Reynard Court around 8 a.m., according to Lt. Curtis Wilson of the Richland County Sheriff’s Department.
Wilson said investigators are treating it as a suspicious death but did not say why the death was suspicious. It was not immediately clear if foul play was involved.
“Right now we’re trying to determine what happened,” he said.
The infant was pronounced dead at the scene and his identity will be released by the Richland County Coroner’s Office.
The Richland County Sheriff’s Department continues to investigate the death.
