During the course of their initial investigation, Kentucky State Police said Shaylynn Curtis' 5-month-old son died sometime during the night of Oct. 25. Kentucky State Police said the way the boy died is "still under investigation."
According to the statement, Curtis allegedly took her son, who was already dead, to her friend’s house. When Curtis returned home, she allegedly "wrapped the infant in a blanket, and placed him in the attic of the residence."
Kentucky State Police said Curtis "did not make any attempts to call 911" after her son died or seek medical help. One of her friends reportedly called 911 because they were "concerned about the welfare of the infant."
An autopsy was reportedly conducted Oct. 27 and the results are pending.
