The Department of Social Services notified police Friday that the 17-day-old had possibly been assaulted. The baby lived in Kannapolis.

“Due to the sensitive nature of this investigation we are unable to provide any additional information,” police say. “To do so at this point could be detrimental to the resolution of this case.”

An autopsy will be performed to determine the exact cause of death.
