HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Police are investigating the death of a Pasadena baby; the infant was reportedly burned with hot water.
According to reports, officials are asking many questions and are seeking answers from the baby boy’s parents; there is a history with Child Protective Services the family has. Investigators entered the family’s home with a search warrant Wednesday evening.
In terms of the baby dying from allegedly being scaled with hot water, Pasadena police were called to a home, not by a member of the baby’s family, but by the North Memorial Court by the Bayshore Medical Center stating that a 10-month old boy had been burned there by scalding water.
Authorities stated that the parents of the baby boy drove their son to the hospital and did not call 911 after the baby suffered burns to over half of his body.
The boy’s maternal grandparents told investigators that the baby was taken away by CPS last August and just recently returned to the home.
As police continue their investigation in the case, they look to the parents of the baby to have an explanation for what happened; additional reports indicate that the parents immediately retained an attorney and refused to speak to police.
Detectives and other officials continue to investigate the death of the toddler and are working to find clues that hold answers into the death of the 10-month-old baby boy.
