Investigation into toddler’s death

By Shannon McDonald

The cause of death of a 2-year-old boy is under investigation by police today. The boy died Saturday, from what medical examiners believed was pneumonia. However, authorities are questioning whether the child was medically treated before his death.

The boy’s family belong to the First Century Gospel Church, an apparent spinoff of Faith Tabernacle Church, whose members rely on religion to heal medical ailments.

No criminal charges will be filed until the investigation is complete. The neighborhood of the family has not been released. You can see the full story on CBS3.com.
