Las Vegas police are investigating the death of a baby boy reported last month.

Freddie Leffner was 13 months old when he died at a local hospital Sept. 24, according to the Clark County coroner’s office.

The Metropolitan Police Department had no further information Thursday afternoon, citing an open investigation into the death.

A Department of Family Services report said Leffner was found unresponsive at a Las Vegas home by first responders and taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The family had no history with Child Protective Services, according to the DFS report.

Leffner’s cause and manner of death are pending from the coroner’s office.
