Police are investigating the suspicious death of an infant found unresponsive in a hotel in Old Saybrook.
Officers responded to Econo Lodge Inn and Suites at 1575 Boston Post Road early Saturday afternoon to investigate the report of a 14-month-old child who was unresponsive and not breathing. The infant died Sunday evening of undisclosed injuries.
"This very sad event has been deemed an isolated incident and poses no risk to the public," Old Saybrook police said.
Old Saybrook police searched a room at the hotel late Saturday night on a warrant and seized several items that needed to be forensically examined.
An ambulance transported the infant to Middlesex Medical Center Shoreline and then the child was transferred to Yale-New Haven Hospital.
Old Saybrook police and ambulance association officials and Middlesex Hospital paramedics responded, as well.
Police ask anyone with information to call the Department of Police Services at 8560-395-3142.
No further information was immediately available, but police said more may be provided in the next few days.
