— Authorities have identified an 8-month-old boy found dead Friday at his home in Ottawa County.

Randy Kirk III was found by his mother about noon Friday, said Jessica Brown, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman.

The mother called for help, and when emergency crews arrived minutes later at the Commerce home, they found the child dead, Brown said.

OSBI agents and Commerce officers were searching the child's home for any evidence of what caused the child's death, Brown said.

Agents also planned to interview everyone who was inside the home at the time of death, she said.

The medical examiner's office will perform an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of death of the baby boy, Brown said.
