An infant found unresponsive in a South Bend hotel Wednesday afternoon was pronounced dead.

St. Joseph County Police say they responded to a call at the Way Inn on State Road 933 around 12:30 p.m.

A three month-old infant was transported to Memorial Hospital and never regained consciousness. The victim was identified as Arabella Silcox.

The child was staying at the hotel with her parents and a two year-old sibling. The parents cooperated fully with investigators. Hospital officials reported no outward signs of trauma on the victim, and an autopsy was scheduled in Ft. Wayne on Thursday.

Metro Homicide is investigating out of an abundance of caution.
