Authorities investigate infant death

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of an infant girl who died at her family’s Salisbury home.
Capt. John Sifford said Wednesday that Sheriff’s Deputy B. Benfield responded to 560 Deck Lane after someone there called 911 at 5:30 a.m. on May 29.
The deputy met with the infant’s parents, Jamie Franks, 30, and Christopher Webb, 25, who said they found the 2-month-old not breathing.
“Any time there is a non-attended death, there is an investigation, meaning, anyone not in the hospital, we are called out,” Sifford said.
Franks told investigators the baby cried at 2:30 a.m. and that after she and Webb repositioned her, they all went back to sleep.
Rockwell Rural First Responders and Rowan EMS responded to the Deck Lane home.
