When law enforcement is called to investigate the tragedy of an apparent unexplained, sudden death of a young child or infant, everyone is looking for answers. The quality of the investigation will be the determining factor on whether we can hold any one person or persons accountable for any abuse or neglect that may have caused the death. A systematic and collaborative approach to these investigations is critical to explaining the circumstances surrounding a fatal incident, excluding the possibility of accidents or non-criminal conduct, and providing the prosecution with the evidence and information necessary to charge and successfully convict offenders.
