Police investigate "life threatening" injuries suffered by Greenfield infant


GREENFIELD, Ind. (WTHR) - Police in Greenfield are investigating "life threatening" injuries suffered recently by an infant.

Greenfield Police Chief Jeff Rasche says his department received a report of an injured child on Saturday. The child was taken to Peyton Manning Childrens Hospital and was released, but has since been re-admitted to the hospital.

Officers served search warrants at the child's home Tuesday, but Rasche says "no smoking gun" was found.

On Wednesday, doctors told investigators the infant had received "multiple unexplained life-threatening injuries that are consistent with child abuse" and that the injuries may not be survivable.

Police are trying to determine which caregiver(s) was with the child when the injuries occurred.

Rasche said the investigation has been challenging for investigators.

Prosecutors will make a determination about any criminal charges.
