Death of infant under investigation


The death of a southeast Iowa infant is being called suspicious.

Des Moines county officials say 22 day old Carter J. Payne died over the past weekend at a rural home.

The Des Moines County Sheriff’s Department is saying very little about the death.  The death is being investigated by several law enforcement agencies.

An autopsy is being conducted by the State Medical Examiners office with results not expected for several months.
