EDMOND — The death of a 5-year-old Edmond boy is being called suspicious by the district attorney.
Declan Stewart died Saturday evening after Edmond police were told the boy fell in his closet and hit his head. The incident originally was labeled as an accident by Edmond police and fire officials, said Glynda Chu, police spokeswoman
Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater said, "We are looking forward to seeing the full investigation. We are waiting on the medical examiner.”
An autopsy on the boy had not been completed Monday afternoon.
George Johnson, Department of Human Services spokesman, said information about any child's death is protected by confidentiality laws unless charges are filed by the district attorney.
It is unclear who was in the home when the child was injured, but it was the boy's mother, Janet Stewart, who called for help. Paramedics said it appeared the boy fell about 3 to 4 feet in his closet and hit his head on a bed, according to a report released Monday.
Chu said emergency workers originally thought he only had a concussion.
