LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Two police departments are investigating the death of an infant in West Buechel.

LMPD spokesman Dwight Mitchell said the case, which is being handled by the LMPD Homicide Unit and the West Buechel Police Department, is being considered a death investigation at this time.

“After an autopsy is preformed that will obviously determine which direction it could go. As I said it is a death investigation and we are going to let it take its course and see where it takes us,” Mitchell said.
