Preliminary autopsy results indicate an 8-month-old Brown County boy died Sunday morning from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, Sheriff Bobby Grubbs said in a press release Monday.

Grubbs identified the child as Issac Vincent Thomas Romero, the son of Jose Romero and Amanda Williams.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to a residence near Early, and the child was taken to the Brownwood Regional Medical Center emergency room, where he was pronounced dead, Grubbs said.

Justice of the Peace Walter Croft ordered an autopsy, and the body was taken to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office in Fort Worth.

“The preliminary results of the autopsy are Sudden Infant Death Syndrome,” Grubbs said. “The final autopsy report will not be available for an undetermined amount of time. The Sheriff’s Office will conclude the investigation after the autopsy report is finalized.”
