NEWINGTON, Conn. (WTNH) — Newington Police tell News 8 that they are investigating what is being called an untimely death of an infant at a home on Timothy Street.
Detectives were called to the home after an ambulance took a six-month-old baby to the hospital. Right now, they’re treating the home like a crime scene.
Neighbor Val Urso says she heard a commotion on the front lawn after the ambulance had transported the child. “I could hear this woman over there screaming her head off and I’m thinking oh my gosh and she wouldn’t let the cops in, and she locked the door on them and it was the mother or the grandmother.”
Despite what neighbors are telling News 8, police released a statement saying the family is cooperating in the investigation. They are not saying exactly what direction the investigation is going, but they did bring in the State Police Major Crimes Unit to help out with certain parts of the investigation, however for now, it’s just an untimely death, that has set a neighborhood on edge.
Joe Mazzoccoli lives across the street, he woke up to police cars in front of his house, went to work with police cars in his front yard and came home to more police cars in front of his house. He remember seeing the children on the front yard this weekend playing in putting up Halloween decorations. “I heard them screaming and playing and then I saw the police here this morning and they were here all day and finally asked an officer what happened and he said a little baby died.”
