ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Police are investigating two child deaths that occurred on the same day, just two days after Christmas.

The lead investigator of the District Attorney's Office Child Death Team, Greg Blackmon, confirmed a two-month-old died Monday afternoon at her home near 300 West Mercer Avenue.

This comes the same day a toddler died in an east Albany apartment complex.

Investigators say the infant had a pre-existing heart condition and does not suspect foul play.

"Anytime we have a child death, it's sad,"said Blackmon. "The child death team investigates all cases involving child deaths."

Several law enforcement departments make up the Child Death Team, including; Dougherty County Police, The Sheriff's Office, Albany Police, Dougherty County School Police, Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS), and the District Attorney's office.

Investigators say the they have questioned the parents of the girl and nothing seems suspicious. Police should know more information on both child deaths once they get autopsy results in a few weeks.
