Sheriff’s detectives this week began an investigation into the death of a 4-month-old boy in his Lancaster home and were waiting for an autopsy to determine what killed him.

Deputies went to the 1700 block of Minter Way around 2:30 p.m. Aug. 7, said Deputy Trina Schrader of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau.

King Cox died at the scene, said coroner’s Assistant Chief Ed Winter. An autopsy was pending, Winter said.

Schrader said there was no immediate indication of foul play.
