MADISON, IN (WAVE) – Police are investigating after an infant died from severe head injuries.

No arrests have been made in the baby's death, but Indiana State Police say homicide has not yet been ruled out. 

Even though little Christopher Coy was only in this world for six weeks, it was long enough to make a lasting impression on his family.

"His little smile and his hair, everything about him, his little big feet, he's so sweet," said Laura Parks, victim's great-aunt. 

"He was so good," said Betty Beach, victim's grandmother. 

Indiana State Police say last Thursday around one in the afternoon, a 911 call came into police. 
The child was severely injured. Beach says her daughter's husband and the child's father, Christopher Coy, was with the infant at the time. 

"She works third shift and she was asleep when it happened," said Beach. 

Beach says the baby was rushed to King's Daughters Hospital in Madison after his mother woke up and discovered he wasn't breathing.

"The baby was immediately air lifted to Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville, Kentucky," said Sgt. Noel Houze, ISP. 

Two days later little Christopher passed away. The Jefferson County, Kentucky Coroner ruled his death as blunt force trauma to the head.

"The cause of that trauma, or what caused that trauma is what it is question right now," said Houze. 

Beach says she is now looking to her son-in-law for answers. "We're not sure, we're just trying to get to the bottom of it, and I hope and pray that it is soon," said Beach. "I've asked him to tell the truth and he says he is telling the truth, so I don't know."

Beach says her daughter has been married for eight years and the couple has three other children. Little Christopher was laid to rest on Wednesday.
