Dontavious Bayman lives near Summit Park. He told FOX13 hearing a child is gone before having a chance to really live is heartbreaking.

"My little girls, they still here. If one of them were to pass away I would lose my mind,” Bayman said.

People who said they know the young mother of the infant told us they had no knowledge of any of her five children being sick.

Police have not released any other information to FOX13 about the child or the cause of death.

We are working with police to learn the cause of death and if we could see anyone being charged in this death investigation.
