Steamboat Springs A Steamboat Springs infant died Thursday morning at Yampa Valley Medical Center of what may have been a knife-inflicted wound.
According to dispatches over emergency scanners Thursday morning, Steamboat Springs police and Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue were called to the 800 block of Weiss Drive for a report of a domestic dispute. Subsequent dispatches indicated that a mother was threatening to stab or cut her 1-year-old child.
Two ambulances left the scene en route to the hospital. One of the ambulances transported a woman with a self-inflicted knife wound, according to the dispatches. The woman was reported to be conscious and cooperative.
Steamboat Springs police issued a news release Thursday that stated officers responded to Weiss Drive, where they "discovered an injured infant." The baby girl was transported to the hospital, where she died of her injuries, the release stated.
Police officials refused to comment further on the investigation. Routt County Coroner Rob Ryg also declined comment, as did hospital officials.
No suspects had been processed at Routt County Jail as of early Thursday evening.
Several police vehicles and a Colorado Bureau of Investigation truck were parked in front of an apartment building at 870 Weiss Drive on Thursday afternoon.
Lance Clem, a spokesman for CBI, confirmed that agents with the organization assisted Steamboat Springs police with the investigation. He could not provide specific information about the investigation.
Clem said the agents were providing field and lab assistance.
"We can assist through the use of agents with the investigation itself and with forensic evidence from the crime scene," Clem said about the role CBI agents play when working with local law enforcement agencies.
