The death of a baby early Thursday at a Fort Worth hospital is under investigation by deputies with the Parker County sheriff's office, authorities said.

The infant was identified as Laughton Champion, 3 months old, who died at 1:23 a.m. Thursday in the pediatric intensive care unit at Cook Children's Medical Center.

Investigators are awaiting autopsy reports conducted by the Tarrant County medical examiner's office. A ruling on Laughton's death is pending.

Parker County authorities declined to comment on any details because deputies had just started the investigation.
