Authorities are investigating Wednesday’s death of a 1-month-old boy in the West Side Austin neighborhood.
Marquis A. Lee was found unresponsive in bed by a family member about 5:45 a.m. in the 100 block of North Parkside, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
He was pronounced dead at the home a few minutes later, according to the medical examiner’s office.
DCFS is investigating allegations of neglect against his mother, agency spokeswoman Veronica Resa said. The agency has previously offered services to the family.
The other siblings remain in the home under a DCFS-monitored safety plan, Resa said.
Police said, according to their preliminary investigation, there is no indication of foul play.
An autopsy Thursday did not rule on the baby’s cause and manner of death pending further investigation, according to the medical examiner’s office.
