UPDATE: Parents identified, charged
Farmington Hills police officers were called around 5:30 p.m. Sunday (Sept. 30) to the Motel 6 at 38300 Grand River Avenue, near Halsted Road, according to authorities.
Officials said relatives of a family that lives at the hotel called police to express concern for a 14-month-old boy.
During the investigation, police said they found the child dead inside the family’s room.
“The Farmington Hills Police Department and our community are heartbroken over this tragic loss,” Chief Jeff King said. “My thoughts and prayers go out to the child’s family.”
The child’s parents, both in their early 30s, were taken into custody, authorities said.
Investigators are working with the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office, which will review the case for possible charges.
