ALORTON – Illinois State Police are investigating the death of a 3-month-old boy in Alorton.

St. Clair County Coroner Calvin Dye Sr. identified the child as Charles D. Abercrombie, who was found unresponsive by his mother about 9:30 a.m. Saturday at their apartment in the 200 block of Greystone Drive. The infant was pronounced dead there.

Autopsy results were pending Saturday. Dye said there was no visible trauma to the boy and that state police were called to investigate because of the age of the child.
