Coroner: Infant Found on Bed Near Body of TeenagerBELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A coroner is hoping toxicology tests determine what killed a southwestern Illinois teenager whose body was found on a bed near an infant.
St. Clair County Coroner Rick Stone tells the Belleville News-Democrat that 19-year-old Dyilion Rojas was found dead Thursday in a home after someone anonymously called police to report a possible overdose. The 6-month-old baby was found beside Rojas and was later turned over to a relative. The connection between Rojas and the infant isn't clear.
An autopsy is planned, and results of lab screenings of his blood aren't expected to be available for weeks.
