The investigation into a 2012 Booneville infant’s death may soon be presented before a Prentiss County Grand Jury.
Prentiss County Sheriff Randy Tolar said his department began investigating the case after the child died at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis.
He said there is medical evidence that indicates foul play, but couldn’t go into detail since the investigation is still ongoing.
“I’m pretty confident that we’ll present the case to the next grand jury,” Tolar said. “If not that one, one soon after.”
Tolar didn’t release names but said the infant belonged to a young couple in the Prentiss County area, just north of Booneville.
