Emergency services were alerted to a baby in cardiac arrest in a house in Great Houghton on Friday night and he was transferred to hospital but died there three days later.
The baby’s death was initially treated as ‘unexplained’ but following a post mortem examination it is now being treated as suspicious.
More tests on the baby’s body have been ordered.
The baby has not yet been formally indentified.
