State police are investigating the death of a 3-month-old baby found dead in his home on Baker Street in Winslow.

“There is no foul play suspected here,” said Steve McCausland, spokesman for the state Department of Public Safety.

McCausland said the infant, Alexander Johnson was born March 18 and was found Wednesday morning unresponsive in a Pack ‘n Play, a portable crib.

His father is Toby Johnson and his mother is Brittany Bishop, McCausland said. They lived at a mobile home park on Baker Street.

An autopsy was performed on the infant, according to McCausland.

“The medical examiner says additional tests will need to be done to determine the cause of death,” he said. “There’s no indication of foul play at this point.”

McCausland added that state police investigate the deaths of all children under the age of 3.

“The fact that we were there, in and of itself, does not mean there was anything other than a tragedy in the family here,” he said.

Winslow police Chief Shawn O’Leary said Thursday that police and emergency workers went to the trailer park Wednesday after receiving a 911 call at around 8:30 a.m.

“We did respond, along with Winslow fire and rescue, along with Delta Ambulance,” O’Leary said early Thursday afternoon. “Upon our arrival, the medical staff of Winslow Police Department attempted to resuscitate the baby. They were unsuccessful and as protocol (requires), state police were immediately notified.”

O’Leary said he could not release any more details. Winslow police were the first to arrive at the scene, he said.

State police Sgt. Jeffrey Love is in charge of the investigation, he said. Love was not immediately available for comment Thursday afternoon.
