4-month-old death investigation in east Albany

By Christian Jennings - bio | email

ALBANY,  GA (WALB) – A four month old baby died at an East Albany home Wednesday morning.

Investigators say Travonte Goude's 14 year old mother awoke and realized he wasn't breathing around 7:30 at 2101 Leonard Avenue.

The mother and child don't live in the house where it happened, but had stayed there overnight. The 911 caller reported that the baby's head was lodged between the mother's bed and his crib.

"Once I arrived they had actually placed the child on the couch area so they had removed the child from the bed to the couch. Actually, the granddad had performed CPR on the child before EMS arrived on the scene," said Investigator Greg Blackmon with the District Attorney's office.

Right now, investigators are interviewing the mother and other relatives who were in the home to find out exactly what happened and if charges will be filed.

The baby's body will be sent to Atlanta for an autopsy.
