LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Police in Louisville are investigating the death of a newborn found in a closet.
Police spokesman Phil Russell says an ambulance was called to a home in Louisville Tuesday afternoon and workers found the baby boy dead in a closet. Russell says the baby's 15-year-old mother was taken to a hospital.
Russell says police are handling the investigation as a death inquiry, pending a ruling by the medical examiner about the cause of death.
Deputy Jefferson County coroner Rita Taylor told The Courier-Journal that an autopsy was performed Wednesday morning, but the medical examiner has delayed a ruling on a cause of death pending further study.
