Peoria Police are investigating the death of a baby boy who was found strapped inside a car seat at a Peoria home Tuesday afternoon.
Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll says five-month old Benjamin Sargent was discovered dead inside his home at 3012 West Proctor.
Peoria police say 23-year-old James Sargent, the baby's father, called 9-1-1-yesterday afternoon.
When authorities arrived at the house they found the baby lying unresponsive inside a car seat in the crib of a bedroom.
Ingersoll calls the death suspicious.
Peoria Police have interviewed the baby's parents 21-year old Tracy Herman and James Sargent, but no arrests have been made.
An autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow morning.
