Investigation Continues into Knox Boy’s Death

Starke County Prosecutor, Nicholas Bourff, said Friday that the death of a three-year-old Knox boy is still under investigation. The three-year-old died after being rushed to IU Health Starke Hospital by his father on June 19th. He was transferred to a South Bend Hospital where he passed away.

Bourff said he still has not received the autopsy report from the St. Joseph County Coroner’s office.

It’s not known why the autopsy results are so slow in being completed. Tomorrow will mark one month since the boy was injured and subsequently died of the injuries.
