Coroner: Infant found dead in D’Iberville died of natural causes

D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) - Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove said autopsy results show the infant who was found dead early Wednesday morning in D'Iberville died of natural causes, and no trauma or injuries were found on the child.

As we first reported, the baby was found dead inside a unit at the Landmark Apartments on Lamey Bridge Rd.

Officials say the baby's father woke up to his father telling him something was wrong with the baby. The grandfather then called 911.

Police tell us the child's father ran "hysterically out of the house." He was found later by officers hanging from a staircase at the complex.

Hargrove confirmed the father's cause of death was suicide by hanging.
