And now an update on a story we first brought Monday on the untimely death of a 4-month-old baby from Hartland. Vermont State Police say they are still investigating the death of the infant, identified as Wyatt Morrill – the son of Hartland residents Timothy Morrill and Kristi Bonnell – and are awaiting the results of an autopsy from the state chief medical examiner in Burlington.
Vermont State Police Lieutenant Dan Trudeau told the Valley News that there were no obvious signs of trauma on the infant, and that the child had been suffering from an upper respiratory cold at the time of his death.
The Vermont State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation was called in to help with the investigation, though officials say their assistance in routine whenever an untimely death occurs.
