Infant Found Dead Inside Orchard Street Apartment
An infant was found dead inside an Orchard Street apartment early Friday morning, police said.
The baby was reportedly unconscious inside 191 Orchard at 7:30am, and the authorities were called. Identified in published reports as 9-month-old Princeton Coaxum, the infant was pronounced dead at the scene.
The police report stated that the baby appeared fine when put to bed in the crib the night before, but that, according to the father, the child reportedly had a condition that affected breathing.
The medical examiner will determine the baby’s official cause of death in the coming days.
191 Orchard Street last hit a spat of morbid headlines in 2012 when a 29-year-old woman tumbled down the tenement stairs in a fatal accident.
