Holden , Logan County , West Virginia

Neighbors are still trying to understand the situation after police say a baby was found dead in Logan County.

West Virginia State Police responded to the home on Fremont Loop in Holden around 10 a.m. Thursday.

Police said the infant was dead at the scene.

"I went in the house to see what was going on," a neighbor said. "They were all hysterical."

People living in a Logan County neighborhood are in shock after 9-month-old January Hugle was found dead early Thursday morning.

The neighbor was also shocked a baby lived there. While she knew an older child lived in the Holden home, she "didn't even know the baby was there."

No word was available on how the 9-month-old died, but police are investigating.

The mother of the infant and people living in the house were questioned and are now forced to deal with the loss.

"A lot of questions that still need answered," Cpl. L.D. Hensley, with West Virginia State Police, said. "As you would expect in this situation, just in shock and a lot of emotions."

Neighbors said the incident rocked the usually quiet neighborhood. One said this is "something you don't see in this neighborhood."

"It's a shame I mean it shouldn't have happened," neighbor William Turner said. "I hope they find out who's responsible if somebody did do it."

While police have yet to determine what exactly happened to January Hugle, they hope to have answers to some of their questions after Friday's autopsy.

"It's always saddening to show up on one of these scenes," said Hensley, "Just for the fact of a lost life and the loss of the family."

State Police plan to continue interviewing people.

They also will visit the Medical Examiner's office for results of the autopsy.

Right now, this is not a criminal investigation and no charges have been filed.



State Police in Logan said they are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a 10-month-old baby in Logan County.

Logan 911 received a call about 10 a.m. Thursday about the infant in Holden.

State Police are conducting interviews and waiting for a report from the West Virginia Medical Examiner's Office to see whether a criminal investigation is warranted.
