Deputies responded to an unresponsive infant in Saline County early Wednesday morning.
According to the Saline County Sheriff’s Department, the three-month-old’s father reported he fell asleep on the couch Tuesday night with the child. Eric Browder told deputies he woke up several hours later to find Jaydah Wood lying between himself and the back of the couch, not moving. The child’s grandmother, who also lives in the Route ZZ residence, told deputies that SIDS runs in their family.
The infant’s body has been taken to the Saline County Coroner’s office pending an autopsy.
