At this time, the death is considered suspicious and The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will begin an autopsy today, Monday, Jan. 31, 2022. However, due to specialized medical testing that must be done following infant deaths, infant autopsies often take several months to complete. For this reason, the name of the infant will not be released until both the autopsy and additional medical testing have been completed.

Investigators have spoken with several family members over the weekend and are continuing to speak with witnesses.

The investigation is ongoing and no further details will be released at this time.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact police by calling 403-266-1234. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers through any of the following methods:
