Police Investigate Death of Baby Girl in Naugatuck



    Police in Naugatuck spent Tuesday at the scene of the death of baby girl, but they do not yet know how she died.

    “Outside of just being called here because a child was unresponsive,” Lt. Bryan Cammarata of Naugatuck Police said, “we really don't have much information right now.”

    Police started investigating at 7 a.m. and local authorities as well as the Connecticut State Police Major Crime Unit are involved in the case.

    The baby's parents were with police while the investigation proceeded in their Diamond Street apartment. 

    Neighbors said they saw medics appear on their street around 7 a.m.

    Medics brought her out of the apartment this morning and tried to revive her, according to people at the scene today.

    “I knew it was serious,” said Edwin Diaz, who looked on from his window across the street. “They were rushing and then they put the baby in the ambulance.”

    People who know the family were shocked.

    “The father's really nice,” said Pamela Ready. “My kids were over there the other night doing an Easter Egg hunt. The tragedy is all these kids are dealing with this.”
