JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) -

The Johnson City Police Department is investigating the death of a 16 month-old child.

According to Lt. Steve Sherfey, someone found the toddler unresponsive inside an apartment along Knob Creek Road yesterday. The person who found the child brought it Johnson City Medical Center and just before one o'clock Monday afternoon, police were called in to investigate, Lt. Sherfey said.

"We are investigating the death of the child, and are awaiting autopsy results," Chief Mark Sirois said. "The investigation is continuing at this time."

According to Lt. Sherfey, the autopsy results will determine where this investigation goes. At this point, he says police do not know how the child died or if a crime was committed. They say the autopsy will provide a cause of death.

Other than that, police say they can't release anything else about the investigation at this time.

"I can't say who found the baby," Lt. Sherfey said. "Any time you have a child death we're going to look into it."

An autopsy is being conducted at the Quillen College of Medicine.
