EL PASO, Texas -- El Paso police were looking into the death of a baby on Christmas Day.
A Crime Scene Unit was deployed Saturday to a residence in the 600 block of South Yarborough and a police spokesperson confirmed there was an ongoing investigation.
Police said a cause of death hadn't yet been determined and indicated it was possible the baby may have died of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
SIDS is the unexplained death of a seemingly healthy baby less than a year old. According to medical experts, many SIDS deaths are associated with accidental suffocation during sleep, which is why it's sometimes referred to as "crib death."
