AG's office: 4-month-old boy dead, twin sister injured in Lyman home

LYMAN — A 4-month-old boy died early Wednesday and his twin sister suffered serious injuries in their Quebec Road home, according to the state Attorney General's Office.

The boy was found "in medical distress" at 4:51 a.m. Wednesday after police responded to a call from an "adult male and adult female at the home," Jeffery Strelzin, chief of the Attorney General's Homicide Unit, said in a statement.

The boy was taken to a local hospital and declared dead. His twin sister remained in the hospital Wednesday night, Strelzin said.

"The circumstances that led to the infant male's death and his sister's injuries are under investigation," Strelzin's statement said.

Paul Achilles of 9 Quebec Road, who said he lives about a half-mile from the infants' house — Strelzin did not release the home's address — said a police presence was still at the home about 7 p.m. Wednesday.

"I know the crime lab is up there and everything is cordoned off," he said.

Achilles said he was saddened, but not surprised, by what happened to the babies.

"It's not a good situation. I know there's drug problems up there," he said of the home.

Achilles said he'd never heard of anything similar happening in Lyman before.

"No, never," he said. "It's a small community."
