3-year-old’s death investigated in Monroe County

Monroe County sheriff’s investigators are probing the death of a 3-year-old boy who died after being taken to the hospital in Forsyth on Friday night.

The boy, whose name wasn’t released, had complained of severe abdominal pain Friday evening, investigator Allen Henderson said Monday.

“It’s either an injury or abuse,” Henderson said of the child’s cause of death. The boy died at about 7 p.m. at Monroe County Hospital, where his mother and grandmother took him for treatment, the investigator said.

“We’re looking into the possibility of it being an abuse case,” he said.
