Police say they are still actively investigating and “can not rule anything out” after a 9-month-old boy was found unresponsive and died in Harvard.

The Harvard Fire Protection District and Harvard Police Department responded around 9:51 a.m. Tuesday to the first block of North Lincoln Street.

Harvard Police Chief Tyson Bauman said officers received a call for an unresponsive infant.

Officers arrived on the scene before paramedics to find the 9-month-old boy was not conscious and not breathing.

Officers began performing CPR on the boy until paramedics arrived, Bauman said.

The Harvard Fire Protection District transported the infant to Mercy Harvard Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The Harvard Police Department and the Crimes Against Children Task Force are actively investigating the incident.

The McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office is also working in conjunction with the investigation.

Bauman told Lake and McHenry County Scanner on Friday that the case is still actively under investigation.

Officials have not said what they believe led to the child’s death.

“We can not at this time rule anything out as its important to do our due diligence,” Bauman said.

Bauman said an autopsy has been conducted and his department is waiting on the results.

McHenry County Coroner Dr. Michael Rein said his office is awaiting toxicology results and other further investigation.

A final report from the medical examiner is also pending. Rein said he is not releasing the identity of the child due to him being a juvenile.
