Posted: Updated:

PENDLETON, OR.-- Five-month-old Dominic Freel, a resident of Milton-Freewater, was brought to providence St. Mary's Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. Authorities have since been looking into the infant's death, trying to put the pieces together and figure out what happened. Umatilla County District Attorney, Dan Primus, gave us the latest updates on the case. 


"At this point no one's been charged in... relating to the death of this child. There was an autopsy, we do have the results of his autopsy. The investigation continues and I anticipate that there could be some charges in the future."

The autopsy was completed on June 11th, but the results have not yet been released to the public. A histology and toxicology report are in place as well, but may take up to 90 days to yield results. As of now, Dominic's death is being investigated as a homicide.
