ADAMS COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department is investigating the death of a young baby. 

According to Sheriff Peter Walker, the baby was pronounced dead Wednesday in Fayette. 

The coroner is currently performing an autopsy because it is unclear how the baby died or what the circumstances were.

According to the coroner, there are conflicting reports on exactly where the body of the baby was found.

The baby's mother was taken to a hospital in Adams County. According to Sheriff Walker, two women later brought the deceased baby's body to the hospital where the mother was being treated. 

Sheriff Walker says they are working to see if there was any foul play involved in the baby's death.

This investigation is ongoing and no arrests have been made yet.
