The Madison County Corner’s Office has released preliminary information in connection with the death of an infant in Alton this week. Authorities say two-month-old Aiden Hubbard was found unresponsive by his mother, Russena Hubbard, around 11:30am Monday, and an autopsy has failed to reveal an overt cause of death.
The mother contacted authorities Monday and the child was pronounced dead at the scene. The coroner’s office will conduct additional medical testing and no cause of death will be prescribed until completion of the testing. The death remains under the investigation of the Alton Police Department with consultation with the Madison County State’s Attorney.
