Law officers look into how baby died

February 13, 2008

Lee County -- The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is looking into how a 4-month old baby died in Lee County.

About 1 o'clock Wednesday afternoon, Lee County Sheriff's deputies responded to a home at 147 Dunaway Drive.  That's also the site of a home daycare.

The home is listed under Earl and Ann Fuller. Around lunch time, authorities say the daycare provider went to check on the baby boy in a bedroom and discovered he wasn't moving or breathing.  She called for help.  

EMTs responded and also found the child not breathing.   As with any death investigation in Lee County, the GBI was called in to help.  

"They'll just check the house, check the scene, see what may have been the cause of death," said Lt. Lewis Harris, Jr. with the Lee County Sheriff's Office, "Right now we're classifying it as a death investigation."

Investigators hope to know the exact cause of death by Thursday. Other parents who had children at the home daycare were called to pick them up Wednesday afternoon as investigators processed the site.
