A 24-year-old Washington State woman is under investigation for homicide and reckless care that caused the death of her infant son, Kent Police said late Saturday.

Medics were called on Dec. 12 after the 2-month old baby was found unresponsive, police said. 

Police said the mother placed the child on his stomach on top of a sleeping bag and left him unattended for at least 20 minutes while she watched television in another room.

When the mother returned, she found the child unresponsive and not breathing.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for the child's memorial fund. Click here to view.
