Death of infant investigated

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s investigators and the Department of Human Services are looking into the death of a 5-month-old girl.

Deputies filed a report over the weekend after medics found the child unresponsive at a Garden Walk apartment. Medics told deputies there were no obvious signs of trauma.

Deputies said a woman in the apartment went to lie down with the baby, and later, she was awakened by others in the home when they noticed the infant was not breathing.
