4-month-old found dead in Chenango County

A 4-month-old baby girl's death has prompted the Chenango County's Sheriff's Office to investigate.

Just after 5 p.m. last Thursday, deputies were called to a home on Baumann Road in the Town of Pitcher.

Deputies say an autopsy was performed on the baby at Lourdes Hospital in Binghamton on Friday. They did not provide a time table for when those results are expected.

At this time, officials are not releasing the baby's name.

The Sheriff's Office says it must investigate any death that doesn't happen in a hospital, or in the presence of hospice.
