Investigators in St. Francis County are looking into the deaths of two children.

FORREST CITY, Ark. (AP) — Investigators in St. Francis County are looking into the deaths of two children.

According to the Times-Herald, the sheriff's office received a 911 call about 6:30 a.m. Tuesday from a woman who said her four-month-old baby wasn't breathing. A sheriff's report says paramedics told deputies Jaydin Malone had a temperature of 103 degrees.

The child's body was taken to the state crime lab to determine a cause of death. Maj. Gene Wingo says investigators haven't found any signs of foul play.

Forrest City police say a woman who called 911 about 9:30 a.m. told them her child had a fever the night before and wasn't moving when she checked following morning.

The body of 13-month-old Gabriel Mucherson was sent to the medical examiner's office.
