AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Maine State Police say the death of a 4-month-old baby boy from Augusta is under investigation.

Connor Soucy died Tuesday afternoon at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. An autopsy was scheduled for Wednesday to determine the cause of death. Augusta police are also investigating.

The baby was rushed by ambulance to MaineGeneral Hospital in Augusta Monday evening. The child’s father, 33-year-old Shane Soucy of Augusta, called an ambulance and said the baby was unresponsive after taking a bath. The baby was then flown by helicopter to the Bangor hospital.

The baby lived with its mother, 27-year-old Jennifer Bisson-Watson, who’s been living in Farmingdale. The baby was dropped off at Soucy’s house earlier in the day.

Police have interviewed the parents and both have cooperated with the investigation. As is standard in all deaths of children under the age of three, State Police joined Augusta Police in investigating the circumstances.
