Baby found dead in home west of Las Cruces

Doña Ana County Sheriff’s Department

A 1-year-old boy was found unresponsive inside a home near the Southern New Mexico State Fairgrounds Wednesday morning, Doña Ana County Sheriff’s Investigators said.

The child had fallen asleep on a living room couch in the living room, according to the boy’s mother, who noticed around 10 a.m. that her son was not breathing. She called for help from medics who were at the fairgrounds nearby, but attempts to resuscitate the baby were unsuccessful.

Investigators say the child’s body will be sent for an autopsy. Investigators do not suspect foul play in the child’s death.
