Portales Baby Death

The Roosevelt County Sheriff's Department is investigating the death of a 9-month-old girl.

Sheriff Darren Hooker says the death of Kyler Willis is suspicious, but he didn't elaborate beyond that.

He says his department is waiting for the state Office of the Medical Investigator in Albuquerque to determine a cause of death.

Authorities say the infant, whose parents live in the county, was found unresponsive at a babysitter's home in Portales on September 5th.

Hooker says the child was taken to a Lubbock hospital where she died last Thursday.
